Limited Edition! Luxury 100% British Alpaca Duvets
NEWS UPDATE! Alpacas are sheared just once a year. We are waiting for wool from this year's shearing of British alpacas and it will be with us in early October. As soon as it arrives our Limited Edition Alpaca duvets will be back in stock and available to order online or over the telephone.
Our beautiful 100% British Alpaca wool duvets are individually handcrafted by our experienced seamstresses at our Devon workshops.
Alpaca wool is recognised world-wide for its luxurious and fine fibres. Each fibre has large hollow spaces, which increases thermal capability and temperature regulation, meaning that you can opt for a slightly lighter duvet if this is your preference. Alpaca fibres have fewer and flatter scales in comparison to sheep's wool fibres, making it especially soft. Alpaca wool has minimal lanolin content.
We only use a very high grade, natural white 100% British alpaca wool that is endorsed by the British Alpaca Society. It is cleaned in British mills, without the use of chemicals or bleach and then needled into fine layers to trap air, creating 'loft'. Our seamstresses then expertly encase it in 260 thread count 100% natural cotton. The end result is an extremely soft and light duvet, with superior drape, that will ease you into blissful sleep.
As we are only able to obtain a relatively small supply of this high grade alpaca wool each year, we are offering our 100% British Alpaca wool duvets as a Limited Edition product. So, like a fine vintage wine, when they're gone, they're gone...at least until next year's shearing!
