Birch by Helix is a mattress brand that belongs to the Helix Sleep family. The brand’s flagship bed, the Birch Mattress, is a latex hybrid made from natural and organic materials. The mattress is constructed with a top comfort layer of natural and organic wool, followed by a second comfort layer of natural Talalay latex. The support core features pocketed steel coils and a base layer of natural and organic wool batting. The Birch Mattress has a cover made of organic-cotton, along with a fire barrier of natural wool and rayon. It measures 11″ thick; in terms of firmness, the Birch Mattress is considered ‘Medium Firm,’ or a 6.5 on the 1-10 firmness scale.
The Birch Mattress is suitable for eco-conscious shoppers because it contains natural and certified-organic materials that are sustainably sourced. The bed also offers great temperature neutrality; the wool components help regulate the sleeper’s temperature, keeping them cool during hotter months and warm when the temperatures drop, while strong air circulation through the coil layer can be beneficial to exceptionally hot sleepers. And because it is constructed with wool, latex, and steel coils, the Birch Mattress has an expected lifespan of at least eight years.
Birch offers free shipping to customers in all 50 states. The mattress is backed by a 100-night sleep trial and a 25-year warranty. Read on to learn more about the Birch Mattress in terms of pricing, construction, and performance. This guide also includes an overview of the brand’s shipping, return, and warranty policies, along with a few similar mattress recommendations.
Based on our customer feedback, the Birch Mattress has received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a mattress.
The Birch Mattress has a ‘Medium Firm’ (6.5) feel and an 11″ profile. These settings are ideal for back and stomach sleepers who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds, as well as side sleepers weighing more than 230 pounds. Lighter individuals may find the mattress a little too firm; this is particularly true of lighter side sleepers, who often need extra softness to cradle their hips and shoulders for better spinal alignment.
The Birch Mattress has a wool comfort layer that cushions the sleeper’s body, but it does not conform as closely as other common mattress materials such as memory foam or latex; the secondary latex comfort layer does provide some conforming quality.
