The Alpaca industry is still in its early stages in the UK, with only an estimated 20,000 animals and 1000 owners in the country. The Alpaca is considered the must-have livestock of today and with demand exceeding supply, it is set to soon be an international industry. With an increased pressure on traditional farming, Alpaca herds are a feasible alternative.
Alpaca wool is one of the most ethical products available and is completely eco-friendly throughout its production. No chemicals or dyes are used in the manufacture of the product, and the animals themselves are given the best care and nutrition, so as to provide them with long-term health and to help them to maintain a glossy, healthy fleece.
During the night your body’s temperature fluctuates from hot to cold. This is often unsettling and can cause an uncomfortable night with disturbed sleep. Alpaca wool is made up of hollow fibres that allow water molecules to move freely. It is this that keeps your body cool and dry during the night and helps your body to control temperature whilst you sleep.
Our pillow and duvet cotton covers are processed to high organic standards. The materials are produced without harmful chemicals, promoting a healthier environment and encouraging biodiversity. The cotton we use is natural and both renewable and biodegradable. Through our environmentally responsible methods of production, our customers can be assured that our products are produced to a globally recognised standard.
The fibre is a natural, renewable material that we source from sustainable farms in Britain, and is uniquely hand sewn in our workshop and finished to a high standard. The nature of the Alpaca fibre means that only natural waste is generated in the production process, we reuse these left overs in other smaller products and aim to let nothing go to waste.
