Alpaca Wool Duvet

Superior attributes

  • Temperature perfection
    • Warm in winter, cool in summer, alpaca fibres have evolved to provide temperature perfection. Alpacas endure large temperature swings and naturally regulate heat with the structure of their hairs and the microscopic heat pockets their coats create. 

  • Lighter feeling
    • Alpaca fleece offers you superior temperature regulation with a lighter feel. The fine, hollow hairs are light and soft, creating a lightweight duvet that can be used throughout the year. The duvet is naturally beautiful to sleep under.

  • Breathable bedding
    • You need to breathe and so does your duvet. Alpaca wool has microscopic pockets and hollow fibres so your duvet breathes and wicks away moisture while you get the rest you need. Produced with natural alpaca wool in a certified organic cotton cover.

Pure sleep

  • Naturally hypoallergenic
    • Alpaca is an all natural alternative to synthetic and down duvets. It is naturally dust mite resistant and, unlike wool, it does not contain lanolin. The duvet is perfect for promoting the best sleep, even for allergy sufferers.

  • Water repellent
    • Alpaca does not absorb moisture the way other wools do, due to the nature of the fleece. This gives you another level of thermal protection when you’re sleeping as it regulates humidity throughout your rest. 

  • Hygienic
    • A natural, organic environment that promotes health and does not retain odour. Our alpaca duvet is excellent at staying clean and will only need airing once in a while. Perfectly low-maintenance.

Perfect choice

  • All season duvet
    • The duvet is 7.5 Tog, which makes it ideal all year round because of the way it naturally and effectively regulates your temperature. For those extra chilly nights you can always pop an additional blanket on top.

  • Soft, breathable organic cotton cover
    • Thread counts over 180 are known to be better quality due to the high number of vertical and horizontal threads woven into one square inch of fabric. That’s why our organic cotton duvet cases are 220 thread count and beautifully soft to the touch.

  • Duvet sizes
    • Single: 140cm x 200cm

      Double: 200cm x 200 cm

      King: 225cm x 220cm

      Larger: Perfect sleep can come in larger sizes. E-mail us at hello@milammattress.co.uk, call us on 020 3488 4106 or chat to us and we can discuss your request.

FAQ

  • What is the duvet and the pillow made of?

    The duvet and pillow are both made from alpaca wool. Alpaca wool is naturally hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant, as well as naturally keeping its temperature well and resisting moisture. It’s a completely natural product and no chemicals are added to it. Alpaca wool is fire retardant, natural, sustainable and biodegradable.

  • Is alpaca wool better than sheep wool for duvets and pillows?

    Yes, it is considered to be superior and here is why:

    1. Alpaca wool has greater temperature regulating qualities than sheep wool. It will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer.

    2. Alpaca wool is naturally hypoallergenic, without the lanolin found in sheep’s fleece. Considered a 'dry' fibre, it is untreated and, therefore, better if you have sensitive skin. When manufacturers remove the lanolin from sheep’s fur, it is treated with several chemicals to clean it and render it suitable for use. Alpaca wool does not need this treatment and is naturally hypoallergenic as a result.

    3. It’s pretty much water-resistant. The alpaca wool will wick the moisture away until it evaporates naturally.

    4. It’s much softer.

    5. It’s a lot stronger and more durable.

  • How does alpaca wool compare to down/feather pillow and duvets?

    1. Alpaca wool, down and feathers all keep you warm, which is what they have in common, and this is fantastic when you first drift off to sleep. All snuggly and comfortable, all night long. Except that with down and feathers, you don’t get the level of temperature regulation you would get with alpaca wool. Alpaca wool insulates you from the cold but lets enough air in to keep you cool and comfortable, for a better night of sleep. Alpacas live at high altitudes and they endure the coldest winters and the hottest summers imaginable. Their fur is perfectly evolved to resist this and this makes it perfect for you.

    2. Down keeps you warm but you might get, and stay, a little too warm because it cannot regulate temperature like alpaca wool can.

    3. Alpaca wool is resistant to dust mites, whereas down and feathers attract dust and dirt.

    4. Down is comprised of small feathers and often mixed with larger feathers in pillows and duvets; however, it doesn't stay even and you’ll eventually find holes and gaps in your duvet, where the feathers have settled unevenly.

    5. Lastly, down and feathers are likely to come from factory farmed birds while no such thing exists with regards to alpacas. Also, alpacas are never kept for their meet.

  • What is the benefit of using a natural filling over a synthetic one?

    Natural is always best. Synthetic fibres do not have the naturally hypoallergenic, water-resistant and sustainable qualities that alpaca wool does. Alpacas have evolved to be able to live comfortably on mountain ranges and, therefore, their fleece is second to none in terms of its superiority, insulative qualities, breathability and overall feel and performance.
