The choice of quilt cover fabric is crucial for purpose and quality!The choice of quilt cover fabric by quilt manufacturers is an important decision relative to appearance, softness, handle and the overall performance of the finished quilt.

A common question is: What is the blanket warmth of this quilt?It's a quaint expression used uniquely in the Australian bedding retail sector. The
question is asking bedding manufacturers to provide an indication of a quilt's warmth by comparing their various quilts to the number of equivalent wool blankets needed to provide the
problem with such a measure is that nobody knows what the average
warmth is of any blanket. The term is thought to originate from the
relative warmth of a World War II army blanket, however, no one then ..
The good news, for us, is that we had three sell out TVSN shopping shows in May and June 2014 which was the first time we have promoted the alpaca underblankets through tv shopping. I must admit that I was slightly hesitant about promoting a high end exclusive alpaca underblanket on tv, but I was sure wrong. All of our stock sold out in minutes!

The Alpaca Gold Quilt Collection Kelly & Windsor Australia launched the Alpaca Gold quilt collection in
2005. Alpaca Gold has been our most popular quilt,
especially in the Asian international markets.The
history of the Alpaca Gold quilts goes back to early 2004 when
Kelly & Windsor's main quilt range was the Alpaca Classic premium
collection, a premium quilt range filled with a blend of alpaca/wool
fibre. In those early days a blended fill was used because it was believed that the manufacture of a 100% pure Alpaca quilt was impossible due to ..
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 m..

Yarn Counts The
threads or yarns which are used to make a woven fabric are an important
part of the finished fabric's quality and performance.Weaving
threads or yarns can be spun from fibres using a number of types of
different spinning systems to produce a wide variety of styles and
thicknesses. The thicker a yarn the harsher its feel to touch.
Conversely, a thinner yarn will be softer to touch but will not have the
strength of a coarse yarn and will be more expensive to produce.There
are several measures of the thickness of yarns in textile terminolog..
