Quick Summary – T&N Mattress vs. Loom & Leaf

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.

Sleep Rating

Durability
Good

T&N Mattresses are designed to perform for six to seven years, which is on par with similar models. The mattresses have been sold for less than five years, and longevity past the five-year mark has not been evaluated, but owners report minimal sagging and deterioration.

Motion Isolation
Very Good

Although T&N Mattresses contain no memory foam, customer reports indicate that the sleep surface absorbs and reduces motion transfer to a significant extent.

Conforming
Very Good

The T&N Mattress provides above-average pain and pressure relief compared to owners of other all-polyfoam mattress models.

Sex
Fair

T&N Mattresses are somewhat bouncy, but they may not be responsive enough for some couples.

Temperature Neutrality
Good

A small number of T&N Mattress owners claim their mattress sleeps excessively hot, but most say temperature neutrality is not a significant issue.

Off-gassing
Good

Some off-gassing is to be expected with the T&N Mattress, but these odors will dissipate rather quickly.

Edge Support
Fair

Edge support is questionable with the T&N Mattress and sinkage may occur along the perimeter of the bed.

Noise
Excellent

T&N Mattresses are virtually silent when bearing weight.

Fair

Loom & Leaf mattresses are made to perform for six to seven years on average, which is on par with most memory foam beds.

Very Good

Little to no motion transfer occurs when someone shifts positions or gets up from bed.

Fair

The Loom & Leaf mattress provides little to no bounce, and may not be responsive enough for some couples.

Temperature Neutrality
Fair

Loom & Leaf mattresses feature cooling gel foam layers in the comfort system, but some owners still claim their mattress is a heat trap.

Off-gassing
Fair

Some owners have reported unpleasant off-gassing smells at first, but these odors tend to dissipate within one or two days.

Fair

Like most memory foam mattresses, Loom & Leaf models have only fair edge support.

Noise
Excellent

Loom & Leaf mattresses are virtually silent when bearing weight.

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)
8 (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″ thick. The support core, measuring 7″ 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.

The10″ 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″ 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.

T&N Mattress Sleeper Ratings

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 Sleeper Ratings

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.
