When your child reaches an age and you feel he/she is ready for their first duvet, this is the perfect duvet as our natural wool duvets will give comfort and security to young children.
This duvet is handcrafted by Devon Duvets in England using 100% British platinum grade wool. The wool is cleaned in British mills to Devon Duvets own specifications to meet the high quality required for our products - we do not use bleaches or chemicals, retaining the naturalness of the wool and leaving is beautifully soft and airy. The cotton casing used for both the pillow and duvet is a lovely 260 thread count cotton woven especially for Devon Duvets.
Natural wool is hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant making it a wonderful material to suppport your child's delicate and developing body. It can also help to reduce the symptoms of asthma or allergies that are often aggravated by dust mites and their droppings.
Wool can also reduce skin allergies and wicks away moisture and breathes helping to maintain a more even sleeping temperature and comfortable sleeping environment. Wool also gives a peace of mind as it is naturally fire retardant without the use of chemicals.
Our Cot duvets are made using 300 grammes of wool per square metre and this is the maximum we would recommend for young children as their mechanism for temperature control is not fully developed.
Easy to care for: simply refresh by airing and although our wool is unbleached and has no chemical treatments, you can machine wash on a wool setting using a wool care detergent, spin out excess water and air dry for a more thorough clean.
SAFETY ADVICE - We strongly advise that you monitor your child's temperature and not allow your child to become overheated. Although wool can assist in temperature regulation, parental supervision is always required for young children. Health professionals recommend maintaining a regular room temperature of 16°C to18°C and that a thermometer is kept in your child's room to monitor the room temperature. Duvets are only suitable from 12 months upwards.
Husband and wife team Dick and Pauline Beijen bought their flocks of sheep during the summer of 2008 as the first step into their idea of creating high quality, natural British wool duvets; the challenge being to develop a high quality duvet that draped and behaved as a duvet should. The original wool duvet.
After more than a year of development work, the latter part of which was filmed by Channel 4 with Monty Don in his series 'My Dream Farm', Devon Duvets was born.
