The UltraSoft quilting design exclusive to Kelly & Windsor

The UltraSoft quilting design: A Kelly and Windsor innovation

Late in 2012 we were thinking about how to make our alpaca quilts softer and more comfortable for sleeping comfort. Ideally a quilt would not have any stitching as the stitch lines are actually the coldest part of the quilt. We know there is minimal filling at the stitch and that stitching creates small holes allowing warm air to escape. We also know that the stitching makes the quilt stiffer. The problem here is that with a fibre filled quilt, the filling needs to be secured to prevent it from moving around inside the quilt.

How can we remove the external traditional stitching lines while securing the quilt's filling?

Easy, after the combing, carding, cross laying and preparation of the fibre filling, why not stitch and then cover it with the quilt cover fabric?

After several trials we perfected our quilting design which we call UltraSoft, with an Australian patent pending. Initially, we used the new UltraSoft quilting design on the Alpaca Gold quilt collection but have since extended it across all of our alpaca quilt collections.

The new seamless UltraSoft quilting design -

Less stitches

By having the stitches internally, we can significantly reduce the length and number of stitches in the quilt.  This makes the quilt significantly softer. Kelly & Windsor's alpaca quilt UltraSoft seamless quilting design reduces the number of stitches by approximately one half, which considerably improves the quilt's softness.

Loft

With traditional external quilting patterns, especially the old fashioned channel quilting style, the coldest part of the quilt is along the stitch line. This is because there is negligible fibre filling at the stitch point plus the stitching actually creates thousands of needle holes which allow warm air to escape. By quilting internally with the UltraSoft design, the cold stitch lines are covered and air is trapped which significantly improves the quilts thermal performance without adding any weight.

Also with less stitching the quilt's loft is improved which means extra warmth. A world first innovation, very clever. Warmth without the weight!

Appearance and Easy Care

The new UltraSoft quilting design has another feature, the quilt looks beautiful on the bed, no more crease lines caused by the external stitching. Now bed making is simpler and easier, a small tug on each corner of the quilt is all that is required to smooth out the quilt and cover. It looks great for the whole day with no unsightly stitch lines.

Since its launch the UltraSoft quilting design from Kelly & Windsor has been very popular with retailers and customers alike. Simple yet very clever.
