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.
