I've recently called all the stores I can find in my area to see if I can find something locally. Problem is finding it in 100% natural. It's easy enough to find talalay in a blend with synthetic but near impossible to find it natural.
I did find out that Latex International is the supplier for most latex. And if you find someone that orders through them, it's possible to get a special order. The problem with that is that if you special order, from what I understand, everything is non-returnable, non-exchangeable and I'm not sure if there's any type of warranty.
We drove to 2 different places and tried out a variety of mattresses. We both felt that the ones with the synthetic blend gave a much more "stable" feeling but I think that was largely because of the construction of the mattress covers. Does anyone know if it's possible to get that sturdy feeling cover with the 100% natural mattress? It seems like most of the ones I see online are a very simple construction.
Now I'm going to try to find out if anyone carries 100% natural within a weekend driving trip away from where we live (Portland Oregon) because we really don't want to buy anything without first having tried it in real life to see how it feels.
