- Available in two different firmness levels
- Soft and comfortable
- Good at limiting motion transfer
- Lots of pressure relief for side sleepers
- Free white glove delivery, free returns, 120 night trial period and 15 year warranty
- There is somewhat of a break-in period with Loom & Leaf
- Heavier and thicker, therefore it is more difficult to make this bed

If you like a dense memory foam feel, you’ll really like the Loom & Leaf mattress.
UPDATE: We have launched a new mattress focused website. Please click here to see the updated version of this review on myslumberyard.com.
The Loom & Leaf mattress comes to us from the folks at Saatva, which is one of the more well-known online mattress companies. The Loom & Leaf though, unlike the Saatva luxury mattress, is an all-foam mattress.
Loom & Leaf Review: Shipping, Returns, Trial Period & Warranty
Like the Saatva luxury mattress, the Loom & Leaf ships for free and comes with free white glove delivery. That means this mattress will not arrive in a box. Instead, an actual person will come to deliver the mattress and help you set it up. They’ll also remove your old mattress if you’d like. From there, Saatva gives you 120 nights to test out the bed. If you decide you don’t like the bed for any reason during that time period, just give the company a call and they will send someone to your house to pick up the mattress and issue you a full refund. Saatva also backs the mattress with a 15 year warranty but there’s one small catch. In the first two years of ownership, the company will replace the mattress no questions asked if any material defects are found. In years 3-15, the company will completely repair or re-cover the mattress if defects are found but you have to pay the shipping fee each way.

Loom & Leaf by Saatva Review: Mattress Construction
The Loom & Leaf mattress starts with a 5.5″ layer of high-density foam, which acts as the foundation of the bed. On top of the support foam is what Saatva calls its Transition Loft Pad. This is a 2″ layer of transition foam that allows the layers above and below to work off each other. On top is a 2.5″ layer of 5 pound of memory foam, which gives the bed deep pressure relief and support. Next is a 2″ layer of gel-swirl memory foam, which is supposed to help keep the bed cool.
Lastly, bringing all these layers together is an organic cotton knit top, which adds another 5/8″ of foam for added comfort. Overall, the bed has a very premium look and feel. However, it is one of those beds where there’s a lot of peaks and valleys within the cover. I only bring this up because in some positions, you can kind of feel the little crevasses that are created within the cover. Some people may find this a little annoying but I don’t think it’s a huge issue.
It’s also worth noting that the Loom and Leaf mattress is available in two different firmness levels – L&L Relaxed Firm and L&L Firm. The L&L Relaxed Firm version is their best seller though. That’s the model we tested so that’s primarily what we will be referring to throughout this review.
Loom and Leaf Mattress Review: Overall Feel, Firmness and Sleeper Type
The Loom & Leaf has a very dense memory foam feel to it, which really isn’t a surprise given the construction of this bed. When you lay down on the bed, you sort of plunge into it and immediately feel yourself compressing that knit top and layer of memory foam. However, the bed does offer quite a bit of support. That’s what I mean by dense memory foam feel. It feels soft and comfortable how memory foam should feel but you never feel as if you’re going to bottom out the bed. It’s sort of like DreamCloud in that regard. Overall, we’d put Loom & Leaf in the medium category on our firmness scale. But Jeff and Matt who tested this bed weigh around 170-185 pounds – someone that’s a little lighter might think belongs more in the medium firm category while someone who’s heavier might think it belongs in the medium soft category.
We think the Relaxed Firm model is good for combo sleepers (i.e. people who rotate between their back, stomach and side throughout the night) as long as you’re under around 200 pounds. If you’re under this mark, the bed provides plenty of pressure relief when you’re on your side and enough support when you’re on your back or stomach. If you’re over this mark though, you’ll notice a little bit of sinkage around your hips/trunk so it’s not a great option if you like sleeping on your back or stomach. If you fall into this group, I’d say give the L&L Firm model a try – we imagine that model will be better for heavier individuals.
Loom & Leaf Bed Review: Temperature Regulation
This is always an important topic for people to consider, especially if you sleep hot. Generally, we like to place mattresses into one of three categories – cool, neutral or warm. In regards to Loom & Leaf, although the company likes to market they use cooling spinal gel to help with temperature regulation, we just didn’t feel it slept cool enough to put into the cool category. This mattress is after all an all-foam bed (generally hybrid and innerspring beds are better with airflow because of the coils) and is not cool to the touch. It doesn’t sleep warm either though – we’d say it belongs in the temperature neutral category. You won’t sleep hot and you won’t sleep cool, which should work just fine for the majority of people out there. At the end of the day, we’ve only tested a handful of mattresses that are actually cool to the touch and actively promote airflow and coolness.

Loom & Leaf Memory Foam Bed Review: Motion Transfer
In terms of limiting motion transfer, the Loom & Leaf mattress performs extremely well. In our test, we placed a half-full glass of water on one end of the bed and then started rolling/walking around near the glass and we noticed only a slight bit of movement in the glass. It was pretty impressive. Can’t say I’m surprised though – generally, all-foam beds (especially dense memory foam beds) do better than hybrid or innerspring mattresses because it doesn’t offer the same amount of bounce. All in all, I don’t think you have to worry about waking up your partner if you toss and turn or get up a lot during the middle of the night.
Loom & Leaf Saatva Mattress: Responsiveness
As I previously mentioned, this bed has that dense memory foam feel – you sort of feel yourself plunge into the mattress. As such, we noticed this bed is not all that responsive. When pressure is released from the bed, it takes a couple seconds for the top layer to fully pop back and regain its initial form. All this means if that you’ll find it requires a little extra effort to switch between sleeping positions through the night, possibly making you more restless. Also, if you do switch positions, you’ll leave a body impression behind before the bed pops back, which means you and your partner might find yourself sort of drifting together throughout the night.
Loom & Leaf Organic Mattress Review: Edge Support
This is an important topic for couples who share a smaller size bed (i.e. full or queen) because at some point your partner will probably end up hogging the middle of the bed at some point throughout the night (we’ve all been there). As such, you’ll find yourself regulated to the edge of the bed and it’s important you’re still being supported. Unfortunately, in our tests, we found the edge support was a little lacking with Loom & Leaf. The edges compress quite a bit and you get a little bit off that roll-off feeling. It’s not terrible but it’s definitely not as good as some of the other online mattresses we’ve tested.

There’s a lot to like about the Loom & Leaf mattress, it’s just not our personal cup of tea. However, if you like the feel of dense memory foam, you’ll really like this bed.
