- Down Duvet: Consists mainly of duck or goose down as well as a lighter quantity of feathers. They are known for their insulation, keeping you warm. The major disadvantage of down is that it may not wick away moisture caused by its own heat. They can also cause allergies in some more sensitive people.
- Natural fibre duvet: Natural fibre duvets are mainly filled with cotton or silk. These fibres are light and soft. They are also suitable for people with sensitive skin or allergies. The major disadvantage is that silk duvets are more expensive, which makes them a real investment.
- Synthetic duvet: Synthetic duvets are cheaper. This is because they are filled with polyester. They are designed to recreate the same feeling as duvets made of natural materials. To have the same degree of warmth as a down duvet, for example, it will be necessary to have a filling that can contain air, this is the weight. Moreover, synthetic duvets do not cause allergies.

Thus, wool duvets can be thermo-regulating, hypoallergenic, biodegradable, fire-resistant and dry faster.

Choosing a wool duvet is choosing the best duvet there is. We talk about a duvet which is above all natural and which offers many properties, such as insulation and lightness.
Wool has many natural properties, known all over the world. Because of its structure, the wool duvet has a great power of regulation and evacuation of moisture. It adapts to the needs of our body during sleep.
Our Alpaca wool duvet regulates your body temperature whatever the season. Its lightness makes it pleasant to wear both in summer and winter.
The Alpaca fibre absorbs and regulates humidity, allowing a soft and dry sleep. It is flexible and elastic, providing extra volume for optimal comfort.
The Alpaca wool duvet is anti-mite. It is also hypoallergenic, thanks to the Alpaca wool it is made of. Our Alpaca Wool Duvet is suitable for everyone, even those with the most sensitive skin.
It is interesting to know that in addition to offering many virtues, the fiber used is ecological. Once sheared, it is washed with soapy water, without chemical processes. The dyes used are natural. Indeed, there are different colours of Alpacas, from the lightest to the darkest. This allows us to use other techniques, such as mixing the fibres to achieve the desired natural colour. We have a wide range of basic colours, which makes our products healthier and more ecological.
In addition, the wool duvet is biodegradable, which means that it can be composted.
It is interesting to know that wool is one of the weakest generators of static electricity. It allows our heart to beat more regularly and healthier than if we had been in contact with synthetic fibres.
Finally, wool has the ability to neutralize harmful substances such as formaldehyde and, just like some plants, it helps to purify the air. Isn't that extraordinary?
Advantages of an Alpaca wool duvet
Alpaca wool is one of nature's most precious
fibres. All its qualities make it perfect for use in bedding.
An Alpaca wool duvet is a natural duvet with multiple properties. It is very light
and of a very high quality
. Above all, it is very soft and guarantees a perfect night's sleep. Its hypoallergenic properties make it suitable for even the most sensitive skin.
Unlike other fibres, wool is resistant to mould
and mildew and dust mites. Due to its moisture wicking properties, it does not provide a hospitable environment for micro-organisms and is perfect for use as a duvet filling.
Our Alpaca wool duvet is thermo-regulating. Animals shorn for their wool live in total freedom in the Andes Cordillera
, at an altitude of more than 4000 metres. The daily temperature variations are between 25 and 30 degrees Celsius, which makes their fibre incomparable to that of Alpacas raised in other conditions. By adapting, their hair gets used to these variations and allows them to keep their body heat in all circumstances.
In addition, the wool wicks away moisture
very well. It is capable of absorbing up to 30% of its weight in moisture before evaporation.
Finally, wool is naturally flame resistant due to the keratin it contains and the moisture it is able to absorb into its fibres. It will have a tendency to burn slowly if ever ignited.
The duvet offered by BellePaga not only has a quality filling but also a cover made of an exceptional cotton, Pima cotton
. With its unparalleled softness and suppleness, it is guaranteed to be stronger and more durable than all commercially available synthetics. It is a rare, silky and high quality material.
Caring for a wool duvet
The maintenance of a wool duvet can be done at home even if it is recommended to take your duvet to the dry cleaners
for the size and not to take any risk.
To clean it, it is always preferable to use dry cleaning
. You can still clean our duvets at 40°C, if your washing machine can store a whole duvet.
It is also important to know that since Alpaca wool is more resistant than other wools, it will last longer and is therefore easier to maintain
