HW Topper

Created to complement the original Savoy bed, our HW topper adds the essential final layer of comfort to your bed. As you sink into its softness, your feet will be slightly elevated, improving circulation, and therefore, quality sleep.

Hand-teased horse tail

Mountains of long, loose premium South American horse tail fill the Nº2 topper. The horse tail is carded in our 100 year old machine then gently teased by hand.

Soft wool

The curled horse tail is encased in a generous layer of fine, soft wool. Synonymous with comfort, this layer gives a light yet decadent feeling. It is also moisture wicking and temperature regulating whilst you sleep.

Our most famous mattress, the Nº2 marries natural materials with exceptional handcrafted details. The result is sublime comfort that’s been enjoyed by the great and the good for over 100 years. Every night feels like a night at The Savoy.

Pocket springs

Hand-tied seven and a half turn pocket springs underpin our Nº2 mattress. They are enclosed in loose horse tail, cotton and wool and hand-stitched closed.

Horse tail

Following time-honoured tradition, the Nº2 mattress is filled with millions of natural micro springs courtesy of swathes of horse tail hair, teased and laid by hand.

Using a semi-circular needle we hand stitch the mattress closed. This painstaking process enhances quality as it allows us to close the edge over far greater quantities of loose horse tail than machine sewing.

Box Spring

The Nº2 deep box spring is crafted from pine, hourglass springs and horse tail. It holds your weight, allowing the mattress and topper to provide support and luxurious comfort.

Hourglass springs

Large hourglass springs are hidden in the base of the Nº2, giving the bed stability while protecting the mattress. Yet more levity is provided by a layer of loose hand-teased horse tail.

The springs are hand-tied to one another, and the frame, in a radial pattern. Precisely the right tension must be achieved on each spring to maintain the shape and comfort of the bed.

The edge of each bespoke Nº2 bed is provided extra stability with a hair roll, encased in hessian and two rows of hand stitching.
