Alpaca duvets are a great alternative to down comforters. They are hypoallergenic, warm, moisture wicking and are environmentally friendly.
100% Peruvian alpaca wool bears no lanolin, making it hypoallergenic. No chemicals, pesticides or dyes are used. The porous fill prevents dust mites and other allergens from settling in.
Alpaca duvets are thermoregulating which means that they help you maintain the right temperature for a good night’s sleep. This helps to keep you feeling comfortable during the summer and warm during winter.
This makes for a better sleep experience and reduces microwakes that occur as a result of temperature variations during the night.
The hollow fibers in Alpaca wool absorb sweat without retaining it. This allows for optimal ventilation and also keeps the duvet dry and less likely to attract dust mites.
These are great properties for people who suffer from asthma and allergies. They also prevent the build up of mold spores and mildew.
Alpaca is a ruminant animal which means that their fibers are biodegradable and have a minimal impact on the environment. They also have a pH neutral feces which means that they don’t release methane into the air, helping to reduce global warming.
If you have sensitive skin or suffer from a number of allergies, an alpaca duvet may be the perfect choice for you. Alpaca wool is hypoallergenic because it does not produce the natural body oils found in sheep’s wool, making it less likely to irritate your sensitive skin.
As well as being hypoallergenic, Alpaca fibre also has excellent moisture-wicking properties. This means that the fibres in your duvet absorb your body moisture and carry it away from your skin, keeping you dry throughout the night.
This is especially beneficial during hot weather, as alpaca fibers are incredibly breathable. They help keep your body cool while you sleep, preventing overheating and promoting good rest.
The hollow structure of the alpaca fibers creates microscopic pockets that provide superior temperature regulation, allowing you to stay warm in winter and cool in summer. This means you will be able to get a good night’s sleep no matter the season.
Alpaca duvets are environmentally friendly and beneficial for the environment. They are produced with a minimal impact on the environment because they do not use animal products or chemicals during the production process.
They also have a low carbon footprint. The raw material is sourced from farms that practice sustainable farming practices.
The raw materials are then processed and made into high-quality fleece and yarn. This regenerated wool is then used in the construction of the duvets.
It is then encased in an organic cotton shell, with hand-stitching to ensure that the wool remains inside the duvet and the cotton outer is not prone to fading and staining.
The duvets are produced by a rural enterprise in Lincolnshire Wolds called Farrlacey. It is a unique enterprise that breeds alpacas and processes the fleeces into fibre and yarn.
The natural thermal regulating qualities of alpaca fleece help to regulate your body temperature and prevent night sweats. They’re 7 times warmer than sheep wool so you’ll never have to wake up cold and uncomfortable in the middle of the night!
The hollow fibres in alpaca fleece are also breathable, which keeps you cooler at night by letting air particles pass through. This reduces moisture buildup, which helps to keep you warm without causing you to overheat or feel like you’re in a sauna.
Alpaca duvets are also hypoallergenic, meaning they’re a safe option for those with allergies or asthma. This is because alpaca’s cool and dry environment means it’s difficult for dust mites to live and breed.
