Tell me more about the Mateo’s cover.

The Wolf Mateo Mattress has a luxury stretch knit cover quilted with foam for an extra layer of comfort. The mattress has the same cover on both sides so it can be flipped for comfort that lasts over time. The cover has a blue and white scheme.

What’s Under Mateo’s cover?

Unlike many mattresses you see today, the Wolf Corp mattress features flippable firmness. As a result of so many sleepers not knowing which preferred comfort is best for their sleep style,  Wolf created one of the few innerspring mattress that can be flipped over for a medium level of softness on one side and a much firmer option on their other side. 

The poly foam adds a layer of comfort to the sleep surface. This means you can flip the mattress over and preserve your comfort and wear and tear over time too which adds to the overall average lifespan. Many mattresses today don’t have a flippable firmness feature so a percentage of sleepers get stuck with a mattress made for the majority and not a custom mattress made for their individual sleep style. Wolf has spent 140 years perfecting their mattress offering and are confident that a double-sided mattress is more durable than the average innerspring mattress you would buy at a traditional mattress seller like Raymour Flanigan. The Wolf Mateo is a medium firm in terms of firmness. The coils do a great job of minimizing the sinking feeling that many consumers complain about with memory foam mattress. The coils do a great job of minimizing the sinking feeling that many consumers complain about when they go with an all memory foam mattress. Medium firm works well with all sleep styles.

Do we recommend the Mateo?

Wolf Corporation makes very high quality mattresses. They have been in business for 150 years so they know mattresses. A queen this nice for $430 dollars is an absolute steal. The double-sided feature will last longer over time since you can easily flip it to manage the wear. Wolf’s fortified edge support is as good as you will find in any mattress on the market. Wolf would not be able to stay in the mattress business for over 150 years and as a result, they know how to make a quality innerspring mattress. If you want a more traditional mattress, Wolf’s innersprings are as high quality as I  have ever seen. Similar mattresses are 3x the price and use cheap materials from China that lose support very quickly when slept on every night. 

Our review concludes that the Matteo Mattress is a solidly built, well priced and well made innerspring offering. Wolf is a highly reputable company with a long tradition of excellence in the industry.

Wolf Corporation Alpha Mattress Review

The Wolf Corporation Alpha Mattress is covered in a geometric stretch knit fabric with “Cool Air” fibers. The Cool Air fibers keep the mattress surface cool. The knit cover stretches over the mattress with a nice, tight fit. The cover is not quilted so this allows the sleeper to feel the benefits of both the visco foam or memory foam and the wrapped coils.

Alpha Layers and Materials

The Wolf Corporation Alpha contains 8-inch wrapped coil innersprings. 580 wrapped coils conform to the sleeper’s body for superior comfort and reduce motion transfer when 2 people sleep in the same bed. The Alpha Mattress contains Certi-PUR Visco Foam to create a plush mattress surface. The Alpha Mattress also contains Wolf’s cotton/poly bonded fiber products for additional support.

Does the Wolf Corp Alpha Sleep Hot?

The Wolf Corporation Alpha Mattress sleeps cool. Hybrid mattresses are great at dispersing body heat.  Wolf Corp’s Cool Air fibers in the mattress cover also does a great job of keeping the sleep surface cool.

Wolf Corporation Alpha Mattress Recommendation

This is Wolf’s 3rd mattress in their “Wolf Pack” series. They also have a cheaper 8-inch option and more expensive, 11-inch, higher end option in this series.

The Wolf Cubbie

The Cubbie’s medium firm sleep surface works great with side and back sleepers and earns a “Strong Buy” recommendation from us. The Wolf Corporation Cubbie Mattress works great on box springs, platform beds, or any flat surface.

The Cubbie also contains Wolf’s cotton/poly bonded fiber product for additional support. This is excellent quality with great stitching and workmanship.

Wolf Cubbie Recommendation

This twin size mattress would be great option for children, teenagers, and guest bedrooms. Since the Cubbie mattress is 8.5 inches in height, lighter sleepers in terms of weight would find this mattress very comfortable and cool. The inexpensive price paired with high quality craftsmanship makes the Cubbie Mattress a great option that doesn’t break the bank. Wolf also offers a 10 inch and 11 inch mattress in this same lineup.

Wolf Corporation 10-inch Den Mattress Review

The Den’s medium sleep surface works great with side, back, and stomach sleepers. It works best on box springs, platform beds, or any flat surface.

The “Cool Air” fibers we mentioned before are also used on the Den mattress. The cover is quilted with 2 pieces of Centri-Pur-US convoluted foam to provide a medium firm sleep surface. The knit cover stretches over the mattress with a nice, tight fit.

The Wolf Corporation Den Mattress sleeps cool. Innerspring mattresses are great at dispersing body heat due to the openness of the springs.  Wolf Corp’s Cool Air fibers in the mattress cover also does a great job of keeping the sleep surface cool.

Will my mattress have a chemical smell when taken out of the box?

Mattresses will sometimes have a slight odor when unrolled from the compressed packaging. This is called ‘off gassing’ and is often described similar to a new car smell. Once you open your mattress, let it breath to fully inflate. This will eliminate the majority of the scent. I usually find the odor to be unnoticeable within 24 hours or so. None of the Woll Mattresses that we tested had a strong odor so off gassing shouldn’t be an issue with your Wolf.
