  1. Why sleep is important for your skin

    Getting a good night's sleep is important for our mental and physical wellbeing and tired, puffy skin is a sure sign of lack of sleep. We sometimes forget that skin is the largest organ of our body and, just like the rest of our body, it needs sleep to regenerate, as well as to look and feel  healthy. Our blog explains why.

  5. 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.

  7. Can I recycle my wool duvet?

    We are lucky at Devon Duvets because we have many customers who come back to us when they want to purchase further Devon Duvets wool duvets. We are also finding that more and more consumers want a wool duvet because they are natural and sustainable, and therefore a responsible choice when it comes to buying bedding.

  10. Why do we dream?

    As Prospero, in William Shakespeare’s The Tempest, said: “We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.”  We all dream, even if sometimes we don’t remember the dreams when we wake up.
