The Australian Alpaca Bedding Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Kelly & Windsor has released its new wool bedding range under its new brand name, Dorset & Downs
The brand name came from Dorset, a special cross breed of sheep which have an unusually high fibre crimp, ideal for bedding and Down's, the category of sheep's wool that is specially bred for its high loft fibre for bedding.
Initially the bedding range will be pure Australian wool quilts and it is planned to expand the range into wool underblankets and pillows. Read more
The new AABC Dorset & Downs brand has been specially designed to target the Chinese market and has been on sale for a few months with great success.
The brand design and logo style were designed by our design guru, Jake of Uniit Designs who did a great job in short order. The Dorset & Downs wool quilt packaging designs are on his front page, one scroll down on the right. Thanks Jake
For the domestic Australian market, Kelly & Windsor has the distribution rights to the D&D brand and their range of quality quilts are offered for sale on this site

I noticed a Facebook post last weekend "who owns Kelly & Windsor Australia?" Is it really an Australian owned business?
We are a 100% owned Australian owned and operated business. The ownership of the company is on the pubic records and we extensively use the Australian made and Owned logo under a licence agreement with The Australia Made Campaign.
Despite the challenges of the Covid pandemic, we have maintained full manufacturing and shipping operations since the initial out break. We are actually struggling to met demand for our luxurious Australian Made bedding collections.
We have instigated strict Covid Safe Policies and Practices and are prepared to offer full support to staff who may be effected in these difficult times.
We were on TVSN with our Alpaca Gold 400 winter quilts and pillows with two shows in June which were both sold out.
These shows were the first time featuring our finest pure Alpaca Gold quilts and despite not being able to be in the studio in person, the shows were a great success with repeat orders required to fill customer back orders.
