My husband and I bought a wool mattress and topper from Surround Ewe. The owner of Surround Ewe raises her own sheep and makes the mattresses with organic cotton. Shepherd's Dream also makes beautiful wool mattresses (and they use wool fabric to encase them). We've bought a travel topper from them and we intend to buy our guest room mattress from them sometime this year.

The wool mattress was a bit hard for us by itself (well, for me -- my husband thought it was perfect!), so we bought natural latex strips to go along the slats in our platform frame. Wool mattresses are the best, in my opinion. No chemicals whatsoever (wool is naturally flame retardant), and all of the source materials come from the US, so a smaller carbon footprint too.
