UK Vispring Launches Limited-Edition Lana Mattress
Luxury British bedmaker Vispring has launched a limited-edition mattress, Lana, to mark The Campaign for Wool’s, Wool Week. Crafted by hand, Lana is filled with a sumptuous blend of locally sourced Exmoor Horn wool, cotton and Tencel – a sustainable fibre, produced from tree pulp.
Exmoor Horn wool comes from the Exmoor Horn sheep, one of Britain’s oldest native sheep breeds that graze the upland areas of Devon and West Somerset, close to where Vispring beds are made. A diet of rough heather moorland means it produces a soft, springy fleece, perfect for creating Vispring’s signature cloud like comfort. Considered a minority breed, Exmoor Horn sheep helped create and now maintain the Exmoor landscape, a contribution acknowledged by the National Parks.
Naturally renewable, fine quality British wool is a key ingredient across Vispring’s entire range. As part of its ongoing commitment to supporting the producers of British wool, with every Lana mattress made, Vispring will pay a charitable donation direct to Exmoor Horn farmers, helping to ensure the continuation of the breed for generations to come.
Founded in 1901, Vispring is the ultimate destination for bespoke, luxury beds and mattresses. Valuing excellence and craftsmanship, it brings together the finest in British design and materials to create the ultimate sleep experience. Always a pioneering brand, Vispring’s founder was the first to introduce individually pocketed springs to mattresses. Today it remains at the forefront of luxury as its bespoke beds combine technical expertise with the finest natural ingredients.
Vispring is committed to its responsibility to the environment, because of this, every natural material is sourced sustainably, and mattresses are fully biodegradable. All timber comes from responsibly managed forests, as certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
Wool Week will feature a variety of events that celebrate wool throughout October 2021, organised by The Campaign for Wool. The Campaign is a global endeavour initiated by its patron, His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, to raise awareness among consumers about the unique, natural, renewable and biodegradable benefits offered by the fibre. 2021 marks the 120-year anniversary for Vispring, who are proud to continue the brand’s heritage of creating the finest sleep experience and commitment to craftsmanship.
