Before you buy a new quilt, we would advise you to carefully consider what type of quilt will suit you to maximize your sleeping comfort. Your new quilt should last years and if well selected, should give you value, enjoyment and sleeping comfort from your first night's sleep.
So how do you know which quilt suits you?
It's not simply a matter of price (cheap vs. expensive) or the weight of the quilt (a warm winter quilt will be too hot in tropical climates) or being confused by the nonsensical retail sales jargon e.g. "this is a 5 blanket warmth quilt"
Relying on an inexperienced sales staff member's advice is not a good idea either. Do they really know the difference between various quilt filling options? How does each quilt style suit you? Or worse still, are they just trying to sell you whatever quilt they have in stock? Does this really happen? Yes, it sure does, Be careful, its your health and sleeping comfort that is at stake here.
Based on our research and experience, Kelly & Windsor has developed a unique warmth guide for consumers to assist you to correctly selecting which Kelly & Windsor alpaca quilt collections which will best suit your particular sleeping requirements.
The Body Mass Index (BMI) is a globally recognized measure of the relationship between a person's height and weight, resulting in a numerical score which is used to assess a person's actual weight against four broad categories i.e. underweight, average weight, overweight or obese weight.
Your BMI is an indexed measure of your body fat (the ratio of your height to your weight), which is very relevant to your need for warmth and in regard's your particular sleeping environment.
A low BMI index result for a consumer, infers that they need a warmer quilt compared to a person with a high BMI i.e. a relative higher amount of body fat who generally needs a cooler doona or quilt.
Kelly & Windsor have developed a simple and useful BMI matrix and related it to a person's sleeping environment to assist you to select the correct alpaca bed quilt or doona.

We are donating a day's production to make wool quilts and pillows which we will give to the Father Bob Maguire Foundation so that they can help and support those who are in need in our local community.
We are very proud to support such a great cause and look forward to another Father Bob day.
As part of our giving back philosophy, we are excited to announce that Kelly & Windsor Australia and the Alpaca Bedding Company has recently partnered with The Lung Foundation of Australia in a cause related marketing program.
Our goal is to contribute to a very worthy cause by donating to their resreach programs.
First launched in 2006, our alpaca underblankets have been very popular but unfortunately in 2015 we encountered some technical manufacturing problems that we just couldn't resolve and we reluctantly had to discontinue their production.
Today we are advising that they are coming back in winter 2021.
