Tuft & Needle vs. Loom & Leaf Mattress Overview

Tuft & Needle was founded in 2012. The brand’s flagship all-foam mattress, known as the T&N Mattress, is a dual-layer mattress designed with a comfort layer of 2.8 PCF polyfoam and a support core of 1.8 PCF high-density polyfoam. In terms of firmness the T&N Mattress is considered ‘Medium Firm,’ or 6.5 on the 1-10 firmness scale.

The Loom & Leaf by Saatva is a memory foam mattress. It features comfort layers of gel memory foam and standard memory foam, a dual-layer support core with layers of high-density polyfoam, and an organic cotton cover quilted with foam padding. The Loom & Leaf is available in ‘Medium’ (5.5) and ‘Firm’ (8) designs.

Please note: Tuft & Needle and Saatva also offer other mattresses in addition to the beds listed above:

  • Tuft & Needle sells the Mint Mattress, which is constructed with a gel polyfoam comfort layer and a high-density support core.
  • Saatva offers the Saatva and Saatva HD, two mixed-foam innersprings; the Zenhaven, a flippable latex bed; and the Solaire, an adjustable airbed.

Sleep Position Ratings

T&N Mattress

The ‘Medium Firm’ (6.5) feel of the T&N Mattress is best suited for those who are considered average weight (130 to 230 pounds) or heavier than average (more than 230 pounds).

Those who weigh less than 130 pounds – particularly side sleepers – may find that the mattress feels too firm and does not conform closely enough. However, most heavier individuals say the T&N Mattress provides sufficient support; comparatively, sleepers in this weight group often complain of excessive sinking on medium-profile, all-foam mattresses.

Loom & Leaf

Because it is available in ‘Medium’ (5.5) and ‘Firm’ (8) settings, the Loom & Leaf is suitable for most sleepers regardless of their weight group or preferred sleep position – though exceptionally light people may find either option too firm.

The ‘Medium’ design conforms very closely, which can be help improve spinal alignment in side sleepers, while the ‘Firm’ design does not conform as much. The Loom & Leaf sleeps fairly cool compared to other all-foam beds, due in part to its organic cotton cover and gel memory foam comfort layer.

Mattress Construction

Now let’s see how these beds are built. The next table includes firmness, thickness, weight, and composition specs for the T&N Mattress and Loom & Leaf models.

Specification T&N Mattress Loom & Leaf
Firmness 6.5 (Medium-firm) 5.5 (Medium) and 8.5 (Firm)
Thickness 10″ 12″
Weight (Queen) 72 lbs. 93 lbs.
Support Core Components 7″ 1.8 PCF HD Polyfoam 2″ 1.6 PCF Polyfoam
5 1/2″ 1.8 PCF Polyfoam
Comfort Layer Components 3″ 2.8 PCF Polyfoam 2 1/2″ 5 PCF Gel Memory Foam
2″ 4 PCF Memory Foam
Cover Composition Rayon and Polyester Blend 5/8″ Foam Quilted with Organic Cotton

How Is the T&N Mattress Built?

The T&N Mattress consists of two components. The comfort layer is made of 2.8 PCF polyfoam and measures roughly 3 inches thick. The support core, measuring 7 inches thick, is built from 1.8 PCF high-density polyfoam.

These materials create a ‘Medium Firm’ feel that offers moderate conforming and helps withstand sagging in the sleep surface. The T&N Mattress is also designed to isolate motion transfer very effectively and will not produce any noise when bearing weight.

The 10-inch thickness profile of the T&N Mattress is on par with that of the average mattress. It weighs 72 pounds in a queen size, which is light even by all-foam mattress standards, and should be relatively easy for most owners to lift and rotate as recommended.

How Is the Loom & Leaf Built?

At 12 inches thick, the Loom & Leaf is slightly taller than the T&N Mattress. It also has more layers. The comfort system consists of gel memory foam and standard memory foam layers, while the support core has two layers of high-density polyfoam. The organic cotton cover has roughly half an inch of foam padding as well.

The ‘Medium’ firmness for the Loom & Leaf provides deep conforming, which can be beneficial to lighter individuals and side sleepers. The ‘Firm’ option conforms less, making it suitable for heavier people and back/stomach sleepers.

Like the T&N Mattress, the Loom & Leaf isolates motion transfer very well and does not make any noise. However, the Loom & Leaf is considerably heavier – 93 pounds in a queen size – which is above-average for all-foam beds. Some owners may have a hard time lifting and rotating the mattress as a result.
