The major shortcoming of a latex mattress is its high price. You can expect to pay a ton of money for this sort of bed, generally $2,000 or even more. In spite of this, you may buy a $500 mattress that lasts for only several years whereas a latex bed will last much longer, up to 25 years. If you occasionally turn a memory foam mattress it will last about 15 years by comparison.
Wool is a breathable fiber. Its breathability is what gives wool the ability to regulate body temperature. It can adjust to make sleeping during any temperature more comfortable. During the winter, wool acts as an insulator. Because the fibers repel each other, there are pockets of air between them. The body heat becomes trapped in the pockets and the warm air keeps the body warm in the winter.
Prior to the 1940's, mattresses were still crudely constructed and many poorer people did not own proper mattresses, but still slept on roughly made ones. As America began to climb out of the Great Depression, the country found itself with a surplus of cotton. Having a surplus was driving down the price that farmers could get for cotton. This situation worked against economic recovery, so the United States government stepped in. In 1940, the government launched a campaign teaching people how to make mattresses at home. It even provided the cotton, the ticking, and the sewing needles needed to make mattresses. Government agents went out and taught people how to make the mattresses, and encouraged them to teach their friends and neighbors. The results of this campaign were that cotton prices rose, the cotton surplus was used, and even the very poor had soft beds and new skills.
