What Sets Silk & Snow Apart

Premium Anti-Microbial Cover

The Silk & Snow mattress cover is made with an advanced textile, infused with a pure natural silver that prevents the growth of bacteria. To make things even easier for you, it is designed with a 360° zipper that allows you to easily remove only the top panel for laundering.

4 lbs Means Quality

We use an industry leading 4 lb memory foam, which is one of the highest quality foams available and provides superior pressure point relief and unmatched durability. Over time, a less dense memory foam mattress will have a much shorter useful life and will soften faster over time.

Pressure Relief & Support

The Silk & Snow Mattress uses a high-density memory foam layer. High-density foam is ideal for maintaining proper body alignment for back sleepers, stomach sleepers, side sleepers, heavier sleepers and those contending with chronic pain issues.

Foam Quality
The quality of the foam has been traditionally measured by the weight and density of the foam. Over time, foam does tend to soften and provide less support for your body, which is why many mattresses reach their end-of-life after a long period of usage. The higher density foams tend to hold up better than the equivalent type of foam in a lower density.

Both the Silk & Snow and Douglas Mattress are made from 100% foam which is made-in-Canada. The top layer of the Silk & Snow Mattress is a 4 lb memory foam and the top layer of the Douglas mattress uses a 2.5 lb foam.
Hybrid or Foam?
The popularity of memory foam mattresses has grown over the years due to the excellent ideal pressure point relief and support provided by these types of mattresses. However, many still prefer the feel of a coil-based mattress as it provides more of a traditional feel and a more rigid base for heavier individuals. Coil mattresses are also known for better breathability and will sleep cooler for those who struggle with sleeping hot.

Thankfully, the technology has now become available to also compress a coil mattress, which has led Silk & Snow to introduce their pocketed coil base S&S Hybrid mattress, which can also be rolled and shipped in a small compact box through regular couriers such as FedEx or UPS. The S&S Hybrid mattress has the same great feel of the S&S Mattress, but combines the comfort of a memory foam top layer with the edge support, durability, and breathability of pocketed coil base.
Cover Design
Silk & Snow Cover
One of the more popular features of the S&S Mattress is that it was designed with cleanliness in mind. The top portion of the cover can be zipped off and laundered separately from the bottom portion of the mattress, since the cover was designed with a 360˚ zipper zipper. The S&S mattress cover is also infused with pure natural silver which is naturally antimicrobial.

All Silk & Snow mattress covers are made with an advanced textile, infused with a pure natural silver that prevents the growth of bacteria. The silver is infused into the fibers and has been tested for effectiveness even after 100 washes.

Douglas Mattress Cover
The Douglas mattress is designed with a red zipper running along the side of the mattress, to allow for the top half of the cover to be removed for washing. According to their website, only the top cover is washable and it is recommended that it is washed in cool or warm water on a delicate setting.
