  1. Why our award winning wool bedding is Beautifully British

    Our duvets, toppers and pillows are Beautifully British because they are 100% made in Britain. What’s more, nobody else makes them for us. We individually handcraft every single one, here in our own workshops at the edge of Dartmoor.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
