90-Day Latex Exchange Policy

Most of the time, we are able to help you select the perfect configuration for your Savvy Rest mattress. That’s what our savvy is about. Your mattress is a long-term investment in your comfort and health, however, so we want to make sure you are comfortable for years—not minutes. This is one of the advantages of ordering a Savvy Rest.

You have 90 days from the date you receive your Savvy Rest mattress to be sure you’re happy with its firmness or softness. If you decide after a few nights or a few weeks that you’d like a layer to be softer or firmer than your original choice, just Contact Us.

We will ship you a replacement layer. Once it arrives, simply unzip the casing, remove the layer you’d like to replace, and return it to us in the same box. There is no charge for the latex, you pay only the cost of shipping to receive and return a layer. Shipping costs vary based on size; we will tell you the cost when you call to request an exchange.

The latex exchange policy is not a return policy. We do not accept returned mattresses or pillows. Savvy Rest’s latex exchange policy allows you to be confident you are receiving the finest in customized fit and customer service.

Organic Cotton

Please wash garments of organic cotton in the washing machine in warm water with an ecological washing agent. For best results line dry. Shrinkage will occur if dried in a dryer.


Wool and Silk

The starting point in the care of Merino and silk garments is to understand that they do not need such frequent washing as cotton clothing. They do not become dirty as easily as some other materials; in fact they repel dirt.

Wool and silk like to be aired. They share the unique quality of renewal, they are capable of cleaning themselves with oxygen. When you have two sets of woolen or silk underwear in a daily wearing and airing routine, they stay hygienic and fit for use for several days, often even for 2 to 3 weeks without washing.

It is commonly thought that garments become clean only at high temperatures. From the point of hygiene, wool and silk do not require washing by boiling - indeed, that would spoil them. They are dirt-repellent and do not offer any culture medium for bacteria or spores.

It is important that you use a biological washing agent which enhances dirt removal. Chemical detergents are harmful to wool and silk. In wool, they cause intertwining of fibers and felting. Silk does not felt, but the fiber does become hard.

It is recommended to wash woolen and silk garments by hand. Squeeze the garment lightly but avoid rubbing, rinse 2 to 3 times. If you use soap, it is advisable to add a drop of vinegar to the rinsing water to neutralise any lime remaining from the soap. Carefully squeeze the water out of the garment but avoid wringing, stretch the garment into its appropriate measurements lengthways. Spread it to dry but not in direct sunlight or close to an oven or other source of heat.

Our natural white woolen garments have not been non-felt processed. If you wish to wash them in a machine, you should prepare for shrinking by choosing a slightly larger size at the time of purchase.



....What about Moths and Fur Beetles

Moths and fur beetles which use wool as their source of nourishment are frequent visitors in urban conditions. Therefore, when you stop the frequent use of a woolen garment, keep it in a tightly closed bag. You can also deter moths and fur beetles by placing cedar rings in your wardrobe.
