British Alpaca Emperor Duvets are simply the best for a wonderful night’s sleep!
Our 100% Alpaca All-Year All Season Emporer Duvets offer the ultimate in comfort for a great night’s sleep. Whatever the weather, the same alpaca duvet will keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
You only need one alpaca duvet to do all this, there is no need for a thick duvet or to put two together for winter use. Our alpaca duvets are of medium weight and this provides fabulous comfort, working with your internal thermostat to keep you at a comfortable temperature all night – whether it’s hot or cold outside!
How does it do all this? The properties of alpaca fleece are such that it is temperature reactive – so it will keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer (just like it does for the animals!). The reason it is temperature reactive is because alpaca fleece is naturally moisture repellent and highly breathable, it traps warm air and stays dry by letting moisture escape.
Alpaca fibre is naturally anti-allergenic and 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.
Alpaca duvets work well where partners have different temperature requirements, keeping you both at your optimum temperature.
We do not use tog ratings for alpaca duvets as it is not a relevant measure for them, because of the temperature reactive nature of alpaca, it is, in effect, whatever tog you need it to be!
We make our duvets at a medium weight. You do not need a heavy duvet for winter use and equally it is light enough for the spring and summer months.
Alpaca duvets are very different to sheep wool duvets. Sheep’s wool is not naturally temperature reactive, or hypoallergenic, so you need one or two duvets of varying thickness to do the temperature control for you.
Every year, on our Alpaca farm, our alpacas are sheared and their wonderful fleece is processed into a range of products. Our duvets are professionally made by a British manufacturer – there is nothing but alpaca fibre in our duvets – we do not mix in other fibres such as sheep’s wool or synthetics.
The high-quality, white, natural cotton cover has a high thread count and the fleece inside will not escape out through it. The zig-zag stitching across the duvet ensures that the fleece inside does not shift around. The edges are re-enforced and stitched in such a way as to ensure the fibres do not migrate out.
Each of our Alpaca duvets come complete in their own cotton zipped bag – which makes a great storage sack for all sorts!
Our Emperor duvet measures 290cm x 230cm – 114″ x 95″.
