Wool is a natural, sustainable fibre that has balanced thermal insulation properties and helps regulate body temperature throughout the night. This makes it the ideal duvet inner NZ to achieve a healthy night’s sleep no matter what time of year it is!

Unlike synthetics, wool is naturally antimicrobial and antibacterial – helping to prevent the growth of mildew and bacteria. This is due to the natural waxy substance called lanolin that coats the outer fibres.

Wool is also hypoallergenic and doesn’t attract dust mites like down or synthetic materials do – making it perfect for people suffering from allergies. The casing weave on a wool duvet or pillow is specially tightly woven to keep tiny gaps from developing which can allow dust mites to live and breed in your bedding.


Alpaca is an eco-friendly, natural and sustainable fibre that is renowned for its durability and warmth. It is known as the “Gold of the Andes” or the “Fleece of Gods”.

In fact, it is proven to be 25% warmer than sheep wool per gram of fiber! This is because it has more tiny hollow areas that hold onto the body heat and trap it for extra warmth.
