The best night sleep starts with Milam…

We spend one third of a day in our bed, so how is it that what we sleep on can sometimes be overlooked?

Sleep plays an important role in our physical health. For example, sleep is involved in healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. Ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke.

Many effects of a lack of sleep, such as feeling grumpy and not working at your best, are well known. So we wanted to review and showcase a brand that have a luxury set of products that can turn your sleep into an average nights sleep into the best nights sleep.

Who are Milam?

Milam are a family run business. A lot of research, they developed the perfect mattress wrapped into a lovely design.

“We used a coir core layer, which acts like thousands of tiny springs sandwiched between many different layers of latex, to give you the perfect “firm but not too firm” and “soft but not too soft” sleeping surface.

This is how we invented the perfect mattress and we hope you will like it as much as we do. I have to say that it feels absolutely divine with the 300 thread count fitted sheet; it feels like you’re slipping into silk onto a gloriously luxurious sleeping surface.

We believe that the way forward is a way of eco-friendly, sustainable living where people buy fewer items but items that are more durable and last longer. We believe that these items do not have to compromise on quality or design. We sell amazingly well designed, completely natural, high end products that both feel and look great and are very functional” says Director Katalin Korzekwa.

Now let’s take a look at their products…

The Milam Mattress…

The mattress is a naturally soft and luxuriously firm double-sided, 24 cm deep natural latex mattress wrapped into a beautiful cotton cover quilted with wool. It is crafted from the highest quality organic materials to help you sleep well, as if you are supported by an infinite number of springs. Now how good does that sound?

Whats inside?

Organic cotton and merino cover…

100% organic cotton cover quilted using organic merino wool. Fully removable and machine washable at maximum 30°C. The mattress is wrapped into this cover. This is the thicker cover: with the natural moisture wicking abilities of wool, for your comfort.

100% cotton inner cover…

100% cotton thinner inner cover. Fully removable and machine washable at maximum 30°C.

2cm graphite latex…

2cm medium-density natural graphite latex. We add a minimal amount of graphite to our latex so that the mattress has more fire protection.

9 cm less-than-medium-density natural latex…

A thicker latex layer for your comfort. Made from pure, natural latex. This is a soft layer made from the perfect combination of soft and medium latex layers, for optimum comfort and support. This makes the mattress feel as if you are sinking into it but are very supported at the same time. Soft enough to make you very comfortable but not too soft.

5cm 100% natural coir…

A rubberised palm coir layer made from 100% natural and biodegradable hairs from coconut husks. Strong and flexible support in your sleep that is even better than infinite springs.

4 cm very dense natural latex…

A GOLS certified latex layer that is very dense making. The perfect side for those who prefer a firmer night’s sleep. This is due to the combination of a very dense and medium dense latex layer so that the mattress has a firm but not too firm side.

2 cm graphite latex…

2cm medium-density natural graphite latex. We add a minimal amount of graphite to our latex so that the mattress has more fire protection.

Key features:

Two sided – naturally soft and luxuriously firm…

One side of the mattress is naturally soft while the other is luxuriously firm. Milam have carefully picked a combination of softer latex layers on one side of the mattress and a combination of firmer layers on the other side. They have crafted these layers expertly so that the firmness levels are engineered to perfection on both sides. Firm but not too firm on one side and soft but not too soft on the other. The only thing you need to do is  to choose which side you prefer!

Excellent support for your spine…

With its superior orthopaedic support, the mattress relieves pressure points and pain while dynamically conforming to the contour of your spine. Relieving pressure reduces the tossing and turning that can interrupt your sleep and promotes good circulation. The result is a naturally perfect sleep and waking feeling refreshed.

Sink into comfort whilst being expertly supported…

With this mattress, you will feel a wonderful and comforting sinking feeling before being caught and supported at the right moment. The latex layers provide the softness, whilst the coir core gives you the firm, flexible support you need for a restful night’s sleep.

Conforming to the seven comfort zones of the body…

The mattress is designed with seven comfort zones for maximum body support. Each zone corresponds to the part of the body it is designed for and provides unique support to that area.

Hypoallergen…

Milam mattresses are made from natural materials and are hypoallergenic, for your comfort. The natural latex and coir used in our mattress are dust mite resistant, meaning that you will have a comfortable night of sleep with fewer irritations. Their organic cotton and wool are completely chemical free which makes them very comfortable if you have sensitive skin or asthma.

Dust mite resistant…

They also use natural latex, coir, and organic fabrics to ensure that your allergies are not irritated. The natural latex and coir used in our mattress are dust mite resistant, meaning that you will have a comfortable night of sleep with fewer irritations. Their wool filling is also naturally resistant to dust mites, and the sort of fungal spores that will irritate allergies and conditions like asthma.

No chemicals…

Milam did not have to use any chemicals to make their mattress hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant as all our materials used have these properties.

Temperature and humidity regulation…

The organic merino wool removes moisture generated in the night, for a cooler, drier sleep. As well as this, the natural latex and coir encourage airflow and keeps you cool. Organic cotton has a distinct advantage over man-made materials in that the fibres allow ventilation. Essentially, all of the materials we use are designed to encourage a cool and dry sleep.

Naturally breathable…

The breathable nature of natural latex comes from its structure; it is very “open cell”, which means that there is room for air flow between the particles. This is what makes the material breathable and cooling for an excellent night of sleep. Coir also does not retain moisture and this is “wicked away” for a breathable, dry feel. This is perfect for you if you naturally overheat a little at night. Organic wool and cotton are also incredibly breathable.

Alpaca Wool Duvet…

Temperature perfection…

Warm in winter, cool in summer, alpaca fibres have evolved to provide temperature perfection. Alpacas endure large temperature swings and naturally regulate heat with the structure of their hairs and the microscopic heat pockets their coats create.

Lighter feeling…

Alpaca fleece offers you superior temperature regulation with a lighter feel. The fine, hollow hairs are light and soft, creating a lightweight duvet that can be used throughout the year. The duvet is naturally beautiful to sleep under.

Breathable bedding…

You need to breathe and so does your duvet. Alpaca wool has microscopic pockets and hollow fibres so your duvet breathes and wicks away moisture while you get the rest you need. Produced with natural alpaca wool in a certified organic cotton cover.

Naturally hypoallergenic…

Alpaca is an all natural alternative to synthetic and down duvets. It is naturally dust mite resistant and, unlike wool, it does not contain lanolin. The duvet is perfect for promoting the best sleep, even for allergy sufferers.

Water repellent…

Alpaca does not absorb moisture the way other wools do, due to the nature of the fleece. This gives you another level of thermal protection when you’re sleeping as it regulates humidity throughout your rest.

Hygienic…

A natural, organic environment that promotes health and does not retain odour. Our alpaca duvet is excellent at staying clean and will only need airing once in a while. Perfectly low-maintenance.

All season duvet…

The duvet is 7.5 Tog, which makes it ideal all year round because of the way it naturally and effectively regulates your temperature. For those extra chilly nights you can always pop an additional blanket on top.

Alpaca Wool Pillow…

Rest your head on our naturally supportive alpaca pillows. Hypoallergenic, breathable alpaca filling in a soft, organic cotton cover.

Spine and head position when sleeping is important for your overall health and comfort. The Milam Alpaca Wool pillows can help to promote a naturally perfect night’s sleep.

Alpaca is naturally dust mite and mould resistant and is perfect for allergy sufferers. Alpaca doesn’t contain lanolin, so even those who are sensitive to wool can use it.

A natural, organic environment that promotes health and does not retain odour. Their alpaca pillow is excellent at staying clean and will only need airing once in a while. Perfectly low-maintenance.

Milam’s pillow’s alpaca filling is constructed for medium firmness; making it comfortable for all sleeping positions.

That, coupled with the pillow’s natural breathability and wicking attributes, means you’ll wake up feeling supported and refreshed.
