There are multiple benefits to choosing natural fibre bedding. Alpaca is one of the softest premium fibres used in high-end bedding manufacture and is much softer than sheep's wool. Widely considered the most luxurious filling, it is fast becoming the must have natural fibre solution! But there's much more to this incredible fibre and so many reason to choose alpaca wool. Here are some of our favourites...
Whatever the weather, your alpaca wool bedding will provide just the right temperature. Alpacas are native to the hills of South America and their coat has to account for both heat retention in colder times but also be incredibly thermally efficient in warmer temperatures. An alpaca duvet works with your internal thermostat to keep you at a comfortable temperature all night serving you 365 days of the year no matter what the thermometer reads.
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 our bedding, 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. Our alpaca wool bedding is an ideal choice for those who support sustainability and ethics within the British rural economy.
Alpaca fibre is naturally hypoallergenic. The cool and dry environment created with the use of alpaca fibre makes it difficult for dust mites to live and breed. Our duvets are the perfect choice for sufferers of allergies, such as asthma. Made up of hollow fibres that allow water molecules to move freely, alpaca wool keeps your body cool and dry during the night preventing night sweats. Alpaca wool has an amazing ability to resist dirt and grime, excellent at staying clean.
Untreated alpaca fibre is completely biodegradable. Meaning at the end of it's life, your bedding wont end up in landfill! Alpaca wool contains very little lanolin, and it therefore does not require harsh chemicals when it is washed before it can be processed. We don’t use any chemicals in any of our bedding. This is a major difference between alpaca wool and other types of wool and adds to the biodegradability of our alpaca wool products.
Our alpaca wool bedding is handmade in Nottinghamshire, using traditional manufacturing techniques, and made entirely from materials sourced in the UK. We help to support this new formation of rural fibre industries. This strategy also eliminates any air miles generated in the export of alpaca fibre from ranches abroad, making our alpaca wool products an all-round eco-friendly venture. With little impact on the environment, in both production and the keep of the animals, the lasting costs of producing alpaca products are low, and it is a good transition from a working farm into a more relaxed environment.
The economic value of the alpaca is evident in the end product. Alpaca duvets eliminate the need for seasonal bedding, our all season duvets will serve you throughout the year and dramatically decrease the need for sleep aids, reducing the all-round cost of a comfortable night’s sleep.
