What's Inside The Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress
In a nutshell:
- Silver-infused anti-microbial cover
- 1 layer of cooling gel memory foam
- 4 lbs of pressure-relieving CertiPUR-US certified high-density memory foam
- Zoned lumbar support
- 1,000 pocketed coils in the Queen (1,200 in the King)
- Firm edge support
In more detail...
The Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress’ cover is innovative and silver infused, making it anti-microbial and preventing bacteria growth.
Cooling Gel Memory Foam
The second layer in the mattress aims at keeping you cool throughout the night. Memory foam is known for sleeping warm and Silk & Snow uses a high-quality quilted foam with cooling gel. Our sleep test gives this mattress a temperature-neutral thumbs up. No getting warm at night!
The 4 lbs of high-density memory foam help relieve deep pressure points and provide a plush and slightly contouring sleeping surface. While slightly hugging, we still consider the Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress a supportive and medium-firm mattress.
Zoned Lumbar Support
A firm middle zone is integrated inside this Hybrid Mattress, providing zoned lumbar support, making this mattress ideal for people looking for extra hip and lower back support.
While the Queen mattress has 1,000 individually-pocketed coils, the King has 1,200. The coils provide support, air flow, and minimal motion transfer.
Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress Sleep Tests
Everything we felt in one box
|Firmness||Temperature||Maintenance||Sleeping Style||Bed Base|
Thanks to the 1,000 coils, the zoned lumbar support and firm edges around the mattress, we found the Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress to be a bit firmer than the average mattress. The coils and the middle zone add stability and firmness, while the memory foam gives it a comfy cloud-like surface, for mild body contouring. It felt a little bit like being on a nice firm cloud above the mattress.
The Silk & Snow Hybrid kept us at a nice and neutral temperature on hot Florida summer nights during our sleep test. No sense of over-heating and a nice constant temperature throughout the night. We felt neither hot nor cold on this hybrid mattress.
Maybe the only drawback of the Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress, but easily fixed with a mattress protector – is that you can’t remove the cover for a clean. The cover is firmly attached to the mattress, but remember that it is silver infused, shielding you against bacteria. To clean up spills, blot clean immediately with cold water, a cloth, and a gentle cleaning solution if needed. Additionally, rotating the Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress every 3 months will add longevity to the mattress.
The Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress brings in lots of support, thanks to its 1,000 pocketed coils and the firm zoned lumbar support. The coils under the shoulders are also softer, making this mattress ideal for side sleepers. My husband and I both fall asleep on our stomachs and felt plenty of support, making this mattress a good option for stomach sleepers as well. Lastly, it can work well with back sleepers who aren't looking to sink in deep. There is some body contouring, but this is, overall, a firmer mattress.
I love how universal the Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress is. It will work with most of your existing frames – flat platform bed, adjustable bed, slatted base, and box spring. You can even take it to the floor and enjoy its full comfort! It makes it an easy mattress to buy and set up without investing more into it.

Detailed Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress Review Conclusion
We have slept on the Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress for just over a week, after letting it rise to its full size for about 3 days. Once you unbox the mattress, you could absolutely decide to sleep on it immediately, if you wished. We wanted to give it enough time to rise to get the full benefits of the coils and memory foam, and after 3 days, the mattress looked nice and full, and ready for our full sleep test.
Let’s look, in more detail, at what the Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress is made of and what we thought of it!
Who Is Silk & Snow?
Silk & Snow is a Canadian mattress and bedding company, established in 2017, by founders obsessed with good nights of sleep, who wanted to create a mattress-in-a-box of higher quality than anything available on the market.
I love that they provide full transparency in where all of the materials, used to make their products, are sourced. As an example, they highlight the rich heritage of all of the generational family run businesses that are involved in making some of their most popular products such as their mattresses.

What Is Inside The Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress?
The Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress is made of an impressive 6 layers of engineered beauty. Each part of the mattress has a purpose and works with your body to bring you comfort and support.
At Silk & Snow, you can rest assured that all materials are sourced and manufactured in North America, mostly in Ontario, Canada. The owners of Silk & Snow have developed products that are sustainable, produce less waste, and are easy on our planet, while ensuring they meet health standards and are CertiPUR-US and OEKO-TEX certified.
The top, anti-microbial cover, is made of polyester, spandex, and is silver-infused.
The top layers include 1″ of luxury quilted cooling gel foam and hollow fiber to stay temperature neutral throughout the night, and 2″ of 4 lbs of gel memory foam that provides deep pressure point relief.
The coils are forged in small batches in Ontario and can go up to a whooping 1,200 in the King mattress.
The memory foams are eco-friendly and consist of natural seed-based oils such as soybeans and made without any of the harmful allergy-causing chemicals, earning them the CertiPUR-US certification.
How Does The Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress Sleep?
In short, the Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress provides a medium-firm sleeping experience, coupled with a cloud-like top layer that provides mild and comfortable body-contouring.
The zoned support works really well. The hips and lumbar (lower back) areas are supported by a zoned lumbar support which adds a firmer middle zone to the mattress for extra support, while the coils under the shoulders are softer, giving the right amount of sinking to that area, especially for side sleepers.
The zoned support in the Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress makes this an ideal mattress for the side sleepers.
If you are a stomach or combo sleeper, like I am, you will find firm comfort with a cloud-like top. This hybrid mattress will even work for stomach sleepers who need more support and a sensation of flying above the bed.
If you are looking for a deep, more enveloping, sink, this is not the right mattress for you. Some back sleepers prefer a softer mattress, and I would look into Silk & Snow’s Original Mattress which is a softer option, boasting 10″ of 100% memory foam reacting to your body’s contour.
The top, cooling gel memory foam layer, paired with pocketed coils, produces a temperature-neutral sleeping surface. The coils allow the air to flow through the mattress and cool the memory foam from beneath, as well as channel your body’s heat out.
If like me, your partner wakes you up at night from turning around and sudden movements, you will find that the Silk & Snow greatly reduces the motion transfer. Unlike a 100% memory foam mattress, it is not completely gone, but most of the motion is dispersed by the individually absorbing coils and the 3 inches of memory foam laying on top of the coil layer.
How Do I Care For The Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress?
Silk & Snow recommends that you rotate your Hybrid Mattress every three months to ensure optimal feel and increase longevity of the mattress. You should however never flip the mattress, since the layers are meant to stay positioned in a certain order.
The top cover is unfortunately not removable as it contains luxurious quilted foam that is silver infused. The good news is that the innovative silver infusion keeps the bacteria away. The bad news is that you can’t remove and wash the cover. So instead, soak up the liquid with a cloth if the spill is large. Then blot clean immediately with cold water and a gentle cleaning solution. Just make sure you don’t rub, as that could spread the stain. If the stain is large, you might also want to let the mattress air dry completely in a well-ventilated area.
