Economical

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. Our alpaca wool products are an ideal choice for those who support this sustainability in the British rural economy.

Ethical

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. Alpacas are not killed for their fur or meat and the animals are not at all harmed come shearing time. Great care is taken so as not to distress the animal or damage the alpaca wool.

Hygienic

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. The unique stitching on our alpaca wool duvets and the natural fibres work with your body to keep your temperature constant.

Sustainable

The fibre used in our alpaca and sheeps wool bedding 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 sheep and alpaca wool 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. Sheep and alpaca wool fibre is naturally biodegradable and will blend back into the earth within a short space of time. The same cannot be said for synthetic fibres found in other duvets.
