Teased by hand
Vispring’s craftsmen prepare the horsetail by hand to enhance its natural springiness.
The coils of the Moosburger horsetail are teased open by hand before being blended with other premium natural fibres, such as silk, cashmere and wool.
The Moosburger horsetail and other fine natural fillings are laid by hand over the bed of honeycombed pocket springs, before finishing. The result: beds with incredible breathability, softness and support.
