Feather and duck down? No thanks, ever since we heard about Devon Duvets, we’re loving wool duvets now – and not just because Monty Don thinks they’re cool. The TV gardener officially discovered Dick and Pauline Beijen’s Dartmoor sheep farm back in 2008 when he filmed here for his Dream Farm series. By the time the programme finished, the couple had received 1300 emails, the day after more than 2000, from folks keen to get their mitts on the first individually handcrafted 100% British wool duvets to be made in the UK, free of chemicals and made from traceable British wool.
Did you know sheep and alpaca wool has an extraordinary ability to keep you cool in summer (begone night sweats!) and warm in winter? Being made by hand means the duvets seamlessly drape your body, just like a blanket would but without the bed-making rigmarole. Wool is also naturally hypoallergenic as it is resistant to dust mites and micro-bacteria, making it the choice for eczema and asthma sufferers. And yes, there is a children’s range – I only wish I’d known about it when my kids were young and driving themselves to distraction with scratching at night. Even the pooch can nod off more cosily, thanks to their versatile range of pet beds suitable for the tiniest moggy to large hounds.
Ethically opposed to wool? No problemo. Roll over and check out their Botanic range – 100% vegan, thanks to a biodegradable (like wool) filling of TENCEL™Lyocell – 100% natural fibre, made from sustainable wood sources. It’s fully traceable in terms of source and DNA identification, and drapes in the same silky way.
