alpaca fiber is very soft for a doona duvet quilt

Why is Alpaca fibre is so good as a filling material in quilts and bedding products?

There are many reasons which when combined together with skill and experience, create the softest and warmest quilts on the market -

  • Soft with a luxurious feel - this is due to alpacas' smooth fibre structure which is actually similar to cashmere
  • Lightweight - alpaca fleece is a semi hollow fibre - air is trapped to warm you
  • Comfortably warmth - approximately 25% warmer than wool on weight for weight basis
  • Moisture absorbent - very important in bedding, to keep you dry i.e. cool in summer and warm in winter
  • High strength - durable and long life (with proper care)
  • Good loft and resiliency
  • Natural, chemical free and environmentally friendly fibre
  • Non allergenic - alpaca fleece does not contain lanolin
  • Naturally flame retardant
