Express Courier Shipping Service to any address in P R China
A new service from June 2018 from Kelly & WindsorThere are an increasing number of Chinese visitors to Australian who want to buy high quality Australian made products and take them back to China for themselves or family members.

Unfortunately bed quilts, doonas and pillows are quite bulky, heavy and h..

Quilt warmth expressed as the "Number of blankets"
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 same warmth.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 ..
Alpaca Underblankets - the good and bad news

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 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 m..

What is the  Yarn Count in Quilt cover fabrics?
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..
