The flagship line of mattresses by Sherwood Bedding Group is the Sherwood Mattress Line. This line has six series: Dover Series, Camelot Series, Coventry Series, Kendal Series, Stafford Series, Import Series. A variety of support can be seen within this line. Models in four of the series (Dover, Camelot, Coventry and Kendal) have a 460-count double-offset Verti-Coil Support System. The Stafford Series has 638-count heavy-gauge wrapped pocket coils, and the Import Series models are foam-core mattresses.
The individual series also differ in the covers. The Dover Series innerspring mattresses have woven Damask tickings. The covers of the other five series use circular-knit material. Stafford and Kendal cover their models with four-way stretch-knit Lycra. In the Import Series, three of the four models have circular knit with bamboo fibers. The fourth model, a kids mattress, has a "smooth cover."
There is variety also in the the comfort layers, resulting in a wide range of mattress heights. Most of the foams used are soy-based: quilt foam, comfort foam, polyurthane support foam, base foam, memory foam, and gel-infused memory foam. Several models have insulator pads and/or layers. Also, several models, especially higher models and all the pocket coils, have thick base pads at the bottom.
As to model names, in all but one of the Stafford Mattress series, the model names are the series' name with the comfort level added (one exception to this is the Dover mattress). Each model in the Import Series has a unique name.
The foundations provided for mattresses in the Sherwood Line are platforms (called "box springs" by some retailers since that is the long-use term). The Stafford pocket coil models are described as "adjustable friendly," meaning they are compatible with adjustable beds. The memory foam mattresses in the Import Series would also be compatible with adjustable bases. Be sure to check and find out whether a Sherwood offset-coil mattress is approved for use with an adjustable bed before putting it on an adjustable bed. Some manufacturers exclude use of adjustable beds in the warranties for some of their mattresses.
Mattresses in the Sherwood Mattress Line are low-priced. All but two series have 10-year warranties. Dover and Coventry seem to have 1-year warranties. Mattresses in this line are widely available.
