Cons

Spindle offers latex mattresses.

  • The mattress is constructed with top, middle, and bottom layers of natural Dunlop latex. These layers each measure three inches (3″) thick; their density ranges from 4.6 PCF to 5.6 PCF, depending on the firmness selected for the mattress.
  • The cover is made of organic cotton twill, and features one inch of natural wool batting; this layer acts as the fireproof barrier.
  • Spindle mattresses are designed to be assembled and maintained by the owner. Each latex layer is removable, and may be substituted for a layer with a different firmness; doing so will alter how firm the entire mattress feels. For more information, please scroll down to the ‘Product Specifications and Firmness’ section below.

  • Trial Period and Warranty Details

    Trial Period and Guarantee: Spindle offers two trial/return programs that allow customers to modify individual layers of their mattress. 

    1. The 365-Day Comfort Adjustment allows customers to substitute one of the three latex layers in their mattress to another layer with a different firmness. For example, a customer with a ‘Soft’ Spindle mattress could swap the bottom ‘Medium’ latex layer for a ‘Firm’ latex layer, which would adjust the mattress firmness to ‘Medium’. Alternatively, customers who are not satisfied with their Spindle mattress may return it for a full refund.
      • A 30-night break-in period is asked for the comfort adjustment; purchasers may swap out mattress layers or return their mattress for a full refund but asks that they have tested out the mattress for at least 30 nights.
      • Once the 30-night break-in period has elapsed, customers may return their mattress for a full refund at any point for the remainder of the 365-night trial period.
    2. The 25-Year Comfort Life Program allows customers to swap latex layers in their mattress for up to 25 years.
      • Regardless of when a new layer is requested, the customer will receive a 30% discount on the layer’s current price. Spindle’s latex layers are currently priced at $360 apiece; with the discount, this comes to $252 apiece.
      • Customers are eligible for an unlimited number of latex layers. They will receive their flat-rate 30% discount regardless of the latex layer’s current price.

    Warranty: Spindle offers a 10-year limited warranty for its mattresses.

    1. Warranty coverage begins on the date of purchase. Spindle will, at their sole option, repair or replace all mattresses that are deemed defective. Spindle will cover all repair or replacement costs for defective mattresses, but customers are responsible for transportation, freight, and shipping costs.
    2. The warranty will not cover the mattress foundation; customers will receive a separate 10-year warranty for the foundation if it is purchased at the same time as the mattress.
    3. Spindle mattresses are designed for use with certain support systems. According to Spindle, all mattresses must be used with a ‘foundation and a proper frame with center support, or a platform bed with proper support, or a wooden slat bed with [proper support]’. Full-, Queen-, and King-size mattresses require a support system with a rigid center support and at least one center leg. Use of an improper foundation will void the warranty.
    4. In the event that a defective mattress or mattress component has been discontinued, Spindle will replace it with a component of equal or greater value.
    5. The warranty will cover the following product defects:
      • Visible indentations or sagging in the mattress surface that measure three-quarters of an inch (3/4″) or deeper, and are not the result of owner misuse and/or improper foundational support.
    6. The warranty will not cover the following:
      • Normal increases in mattress softness that do not affect its pressure-relieving abilities, or visible indentations or sagging in the mattress surface that do not measure three-quarters of an inch (3/4″) or deeper. These issues are considered standard wear and tear.
      • Burns, cuts, tears, stains, and other types of physical damage that occur due to owner misuse, improper cleaning, and/or inadequate foundational support.
    7. Mattresses that are deemed unsanitary or not in good condition will not be accepted for replacements.
    8. This warranty does not cover floor or clearance models.
    9. This warranty is exclusively extended to original owners who purchase their mattress directly from Spindle or an authorized retailer. Those who buy or acquire their mattress from the original owner or a non-authorized retailer will do so ‘as is’, and will not be eligible for warranty protection.
