What's Inside The Sheets And Giggles Eucalyptus Mattress
In a nutshell:
- Eucalyptus cover
- 2 Talalay latex layers
- Hybrid mattress
- Sustainability +++
In more detail...
The Sheets & Giggles mattress cover is made of the same eucalyptus lyocell as their renown sheets! It is thick and padded, sleeps cool and soft, and made from sustainable eucalyptus fibers.
The cute design is nicely welcome and we loved the breathability, thanks to which we never felt hot. The eucalyptus mattress cover is thermo-regulating, helping bodies regulate their own temperatures.
Two Talalay Latex Layers
Under the mattress cover come 2 layers of Talalay latex. The upper layer is a comfort layer that is softer and provides the pressure relief your body needs in any sleeping position.
The lower latex layer is firmer and acts as transition layer, providing the support your spine needs to be aligned and sleep in a healthy position.
Talalay latex has a very even particle distribution for more consistent comfort. It has bounce to prevent the feeling of being stuck in the foam, and it sleeps cool thanks to the open cell technology that lets hot air flow away from your body, and cool air flow back up to you!
The Sheets & Giggles Eucalyptus Mattress is a hybrid mattress, which means that it has a center layer of coils. The steel is American recycled steel, and each coils is individually wrapped.
The coil isolate motion really well, ensuring that a moving partner is a not a disturbance to the other sleeper. They also allow for air to flow through the mattress all night long, rising cooler air up to the latex layers, further ensuring a cool night of sleep.
Sheets & Giggles is all about sustainability! You are purchasing a mattress made to order, that is natural, vegan, cruelty-free, polyurethane-free, fiberglass-free, OEKO-Tex certified, made of non-toxic, eco-friendly materials! The latex is renewable and biodegradable, eucalyptus fibers are clean and safe, and the steel is recycled U.S. steel!
Sheets & Giggles Eucalyptus Mattress Sleep Tests
Everything we felt in one box
|Firmness||Temperature||Maintenance||Sleeping Style||Bed Base|
We rated the Sheets And Giggles Eucalyptus Mattress a 7 out of 10 on the firmness scale, where 10 is the firmest of mattresses. This ranks the Sheets & Giggles mattress as just a little firmer than average (6 to 6.5). If you are looking for a great mixture of pressure relief with spine-aligning support, you will surely enjoy this firmness level.
Thanks to the temperature regulating properties of eucalyptus, the open cell technology in the latex, and the air flowing through the coils, the Sheets & Giggles sleeps very temperature neutral. If you are a hot sleeper, this is a great mattress for you!
In case of a stain, try to tend to it as quickly as possible. Blot excess liquid with a cloth, then gently spot clean with a clean cloth, clear water, and mild detergent. Never rub, as that could spread the stain further. I always recommend protecting your investment with a mattress protector!
The Sheets & Giggles Eucalyptus Mattress is a great mattress for people of all sleeping styles. We recommend it for all back and stomach sleepers, as it provides the firmness needed to align your body and spine. Side sleepers who prefer a firmer mattress will also do really well. If you're in for the deep sink, the Sheets & Giggles will be too firm for you.
You can lay your Sheets & Giggles Eucalyptus Mattress on any flat base, which works well in RVs where you typically have a flat wooden base.

What Is Inside The Sheets And Giggles Eucalyptus Mattress?
The Sheets & Giggles Eucalyptus Mattress is an 11.5-inch thick mattress, designed with sustainability, your health, and the planet in mind! All materials are non-toxic, eco-friendly, vegan, cruelty-free, polyurethane-free, plastic-free, and fiberglass-free!
Natural and made in the USA, we love that all fibers come from trees – eucalyptus and rubber trees.
- The eucalyptus fibers come from sustainably-focused micro-diverse farms
- The Talalay latex is biodegrable and comes from the sap of rubber tress that provide sap for 25 years and are not harmed in the process
- The steel found in coils is recycled
Let’s take a look at each layer in more detail!
Eucalyptus Lyocell Mattress Cover
The Sheets & Giggles mattress cover is made of the same eucalyptus lyocell as the sheets that made the company famous. Incredibly soft, the mattress cover is thick and plush, adding an extra comfort layer to your sleep.
The eucalyptus lyocell is made from the sap of eucalyptus trees, which are naturally insect repellent and free of insecticides, pesticides, and neonics, making it a much safer materials for the earth and populations living near the forests, and a softer product on your skin!
Additionally, lyocell is extremely breathable, soft, and moisture-wicking. It is proven to help your body auto-regulate its own temperature. On hot nights, extra moisture will be wicked away from your body quickly, keeping you cool. On cold nights, your body will stay nice and cozy.
Nice detail – the leaf design and Sheets & Giggles purple make for a fun design!
Two Layers Of Talalay Latex
There are two kinds of latex out there (Talalay and Dunlop) and which one you like best is a personal matter, however… Talalay latex is generally believed to be a higher-end (and more expensive) material. Here’s why: it takes four time longer to manufacture Talalay latex, due to an extra 2 steps in the process. One of the steps hard freezes the foam in order to give the layer a more consistent feel (vs. Dunlop, which has heavier particles fall at the bottom of the layer).
Latex is a very sustainable material (even biodegradable), coming from rubber trees that provide sap for 25 years without being harmed. Sheets & Giggles brings the sap back to the U.S., where it is manufactured into foam in Connecticut. An open cell foam, it conducts your body heat down into the mattress and brings up fresh air from your room. Because of the added breathability, you sleep cooler on Talalay latex than virtually any foam.
A big plus of latex is its responsiveness. You will never feel stuck in the Sheets & Giggles Eucalyptus Mattress, as the layer bounces back to its original form as your body shifts positions.
Lastly, Talalay latex is naturally hypoallergenic (even safe for those suffering from latex allergies), anti-fungal, and anti-microbial. Wave goodbye to bed bugs, mold, mildew, and dust mites.
The upper layer of Talalay latex, which is the first one your body hits after the eucalyptus cover, is a softer comfort layer. It provides all of the pressure relief your body needs to prevents waking up with aches and pains.
The second latex layer, coming right beneath the first, acts as transition layer. It transitions your body from softer latex into the firmer coils, with a firmer latex layer. This layer helps provide the support your entire body needs – from your spine (for proper alignment) to those high-pressure areas, which also need support.
8″ Recycled Steel Coils
The steel used in the Sheets & Giggles mattress is made of American recycled steel. Each coil is individually wrapped, allowing for great motion isolation – in other words, your partner’s movements will stay under your partner, and not transfer the motion over to your side of the bed!
Sheets and Giggles has added a firmer perimeter around the mattress, making getting in and out of bed easier and widening the sleeping surface by up to 20%. There is no rolling out of bed on the this Eucalyptus Mattress and we were able to both sleep from side to side!
How Does The Sheets & Giggles Eucalyptus Mattress Sleep?
We rated the Sheets and Giggles Eucalyptus Mattress a 7 out of 10 on the firmness scale. An average firmness is between 6 and 6.5, making the Sheets & Giggles mattress a slightly firmer mattress than average.
If you are someone looking for extreme plushness, this mattress will be too firm for you. It is however, in our opinion, the healthiest firmness for a mattress. It allows proper body positioning and alignment of your spine and bone structure, to position your body in a healthy position and prevent you from waking up with pains and aches.
We recommend the Sheets & Giggles mattress to all sleepers, except for those looking for a very plush mattress.
Thanks to the responsiveness and even pressure relief properties of the Talalay latex, this mattress will work with most sleepers, and makes it a great choice for couples with different sleeping styles.
Side sleepers will get enough pressure relief in their hips and shoulders to sleep in a healthy position. For side-sleepers requiring lots of plushness (some of the lighter-weight side-sleepers, as well as those with a personal preference for soft mattresses), the Sheets & Giggles Eucalyptus Mattress might be a little too firm.
Back and stomach-sleepers, who require extra support, will find this mattress to be the perfect combination of pressure relief and support.
All sleepers will benefit from an aligned spine and healthy support under a comfortable and contouring layer of plushness.
The Sheets & Giggle Eucalyptus Mattress uses 3 different layers to bring cool to your sleep.
Starting with the mattress cover, made of eucalyptus lyocell, which is more breathable and wicks away moisture more rapidly than cotton. Eucalyptus lyocell is a naturally temperature-regulating material, which allows your body to auto-regulate its temperature to keep you cool on hot nights, and prevent you from being cold on cool nights!
The two comfort layers in the Sheets and Giggles Eucalyptus Mattress are made of Talalay mattress, which is 7 times more breathable than foam and other kinds of latex, thanks to its open cell design. Talalay latex allows for your extra body heat to dissipate down its layers, while bringing cooler air back up to your body.
Which brings us to the mattress’ excellent air flow, thanks to the 8 inches of coils. Air is constantly flowing in and out of the mattress through its coil layer and perimeter cover.
We tested the Sheets & Giggles Eucalyptus Mattress in the Florida heat and never felt hot in any way!
With 3.5 inches of foam and 8 inches of individually-wrapped coils, the motion transfer is very well isolated in this Eucalyptus Mattress. We tested it with a child jumping on the bed, and felt a little motion. However, overnight with a moving partner, there was absolutely no disturbance!
How Do I Care For The Sheets & Giggles Eucalyptus Mattress?
The Sheets & Giggles Eucalyptus Mattress cover is not machine washable, and I ALWAYS recommend protecting your mattress investment with a waterproof mattress protector. Sheets & Giggles sells a beautiful eucalyptus mattress protector, which sleeps soft, plush, cool, and silent! I recommend considering it to cover your eucalyptus mattress, to rip the full benefits of your purchase.
If you do notice a stain on your GhostBed mattress, tend to it as quickly as possible with a clean cloth, water and a mild detergent. Spot clean the stain without rubbing it to avoid spreading it.
