In your dreams...that’s where you’ll be with the British Alpaca Duvet™, the first ever duvet to be filled with 100% Alpaca wool. Launched on the 5th September 2006 it is the ultimate in sleep luxury – soft and very light for summer yet also providing the highest thermal qualities to keep you warm and snug on the coldest winter nights.
That said, the British Alpaca Duvet™ is not just a luxury item. Its unique qualities make it an ideal choice for those who suffer from asthma and allergies, have a poor circulation or related problems, animal lovers, vegetarians and those who support an organic lifestyle and the sustainable British rural economy.
If you are asthmatic or an allergy sufferer, you’ll feel just as pampered and relaxed because one of the unique qualities of Alpaca wool is that it is totally hypoallergenic. And as the only other fabric in its construction is the finest 100% fibre proof cotton, the British Alpaca Duvet™ is totally hypoallergenic.
More than this, the duvet is made from 100% natural and sustainable products – no poly fibres, synthetic fillings or fabric covers. It is produced to organic standards with no pesticides used in the farming of the alpacas and only eco friendly products, no chemicals or dyes, used in processing the alpaca wool.
Animal lovers will also rest assured. Unlike other luxury fillings, like duck and goose down, no animal suffers in the duvet’s production. lpacas are shorn once a year for their wool in late spring and then go off into the fields to enjoy the summer – and they will do this for 25 happy years! Alpacas are not farmed for meat in the UK, which means the British Alpaca Duvet™ meets vegetarian standards and values.
Warmth is a key attribute of the British Alpaca Duvet™. Its high thermal qualities make it ideal for young and old as well as perfect for people with a poor circulation or medical conditions that affect it. Importantly, despite this, the duvet is very light to sleep under and also channelled in construction to stop the filling drifting, making it very comfortable use.
With animal loving and allergy suffering often beginning so young, the British Alpaca Duvet™ is available in a wide variety of sizes to fit all, from children upwards of one year old to super king size duvets for the biggest and snuggliest grown ups.
The British Alpaca Duvet™ is 100% British made with all wool and cotton sourced in the UK. It is made by Farrlacey Alpacas based in the Lincolnshire Wolds. Farrlacey is a unique rural enterprise with an alpaca farm, wool mill and workshop. It breeds from its own prize alpaca herd as well as processing alpaca fleeces from farms all round the country into fibre and yarn. As well as making the British Alpaca Duvet™, Farrlacey also makes felt and cloth from alpaca wool as well as producing a limited range of alpaca clothing products.
‘The luxury is not just in the warmth but in the lightness of the product that makes it supremely comfortable year round. The holistic knowledge of it being organic, all natural and produced with no animal suffering is also a great boost for an untroubled nights sleep.’
Such luxury and unique attributes are certainly not common and indeed very rare. With each duvet hand filled, stitched and finished, production is limited to just 500 duvets a year...making the British Alpaca Duvet™ just something for most people just to dream about!
However, if you want to stop dreaming and experience the luxury of an alpaca duvet, the British Alpaca Duvet™ is available uniquely from Farrlacey Alpacas.
