After years of refining our expertise, we knew we could surpass the quality of most other wool duvet manufacturers in the UK with our superior hand finishing and quality checks on each and every single item we make. Today we work with a state of the art computer system to control the production process, enjoyed from an enviable beautiful location on top of the Yorkshire Pennines.
The new premises are the focal point of us achieving GOTS certification to manufacture fully organic duvets, pillows and cushions. To comply with the certification every item we make is individually serial numbered and is traceable back to its original source. This also guarantees the agricultural welfare of sheep, land, water supply and manufacturing process. It is a fully audited process which they have passed every year since we gained the certification. Sustainability and environmental processes is the core value of British Wool and holding a British Wool Crook mark as evidence for supporting British Farming and British Wool.
In the world of textiles, wool is classed as one of the noble fibres such as cashmere and mohair, as with other natural fibres there is a wide range of quality and grade. The finest, softest and best known is the white superfine alpaca. Each hair is around 14 micron and should be about 4 to 5 inches in length, this grade of fleece is also known as cria fleece, cria is the term for a baby alpaca in its first year.
This superior quality first grade of wool has a wider range of uses including for us in high quality duvets and pillows. Our wool is sourced from around 400 farms each year in the UK. Buying fleece direct from the farmers ensures greater consistency and quality. In this way we use the best fleece available in our duvets and pillows. Organic fleece has very low lanolin content (dry fleece) making it super resistant to dust mites. It is also a medullated fibre. This means that the medulla in the centre of the fibre has fractured off as the fleece grows creating empty pockets along the length of each hair. This makes a naturally hollow fibre. On the outside of each fibre there are less scales than other natural fibres. This makes for a smooth, soft to touch fibre which is also durable. The medullated fibre also gives the duvets greater warmth than other duvets but the moisture absorption and wicking properties means that the duvet works with your body at maintaining an ambient temperature and a superbly comfortable nights sleep.
We recognise that every individual has different sleep requirements, no two people are the same, so why choose a duvet that will only respond in one way. That is why wool is so perfect for the individual, each fibre is encased in finest cotton allowing the wool to work with your body as it sleeps. As the ambient temperature in the room changes through the night and your body enters and exits the different phases of sleep, the wool is keeping in the warmth and moderating the moisture around you. We believe that the place you spend a third of your life, the place where you go to relax, sleep, and rejuvenate should be as perfect as possible. The choice is whether to sleep under the finest British Organic or the Best British Wool. We will leave that decision to you.
