  2. Why wool promotes a better night's sleep

    At Devon Duvets, we created the UK’s original British wool duvet over 14 years ago, because we wanted to find a way to help people sleep better. This was swiftly followed by our British wool toppers and pillows. Wool has many beneficial properties when it comes to bedding. It’s breathable and temperature regulating, helping to keep your core body temperate in balance whilst you sleep. It has moisture wicking abilities, keeping humidity levels down in your bedding, thereby making it naturally resistant to dust mites and the build-up of micro bacteria. This means that wool is also hypoallergenic and more hygienic.

    Spring is here and there are lambs in fields around Devon and on Dartmoor. If that isn’t enough to make you smile, then the lengthening hours of sunlight are always welcome and gives us a sense of wellbeing.

    Our entire focus is on how we can make products that help people to sleep better. We often talk about Wool Wellbeing, amongst the Devon Duvets team at our workshops, as well as on our website – and it’s something that is deeply ingrained in everything that we do.

  7. Why we use a single breed for the wool in our British wool bedding

    At Devon Duvets we’re very proud to support British farming because British sheep flocks are amongst the best cared for in the world. Britain has also been famous for the quality of its wool for over two thousand years and so by using British wool, we are continuing an ancient British tradition of using this wonderful natural fibre to craft quality products.

    We’ve been making luxurious wool filled bedding products for over 14 years and created the first 100% British made, 100% British wool filled duvet. We’ve also been committed to sustainability and responsible sourcing from the beginning of our journey – and that’s another reason for only using British wool and for making our products ourselves because it means we can ensure we are directly involved at every step of the way. It also helps us to keep our carbon footprint low.
