Devon Duvets wool duvets are made using only British Wool and 100% cotton. All of our duvets are handcrafted by professional seamstresses in our own workshops and each one is made individually. This combined with the platinum grade British wool and our soft 260 threadcount 100% cotton that are produced by mills uniquely to Devon Duvets own specifications, results in a luxurious duvet with a light loftiness and wonderful drape.
Our wool has not been bleached or chemically treated and we use only wool inside of the duvet - there are no glues or artificial fibres, materials or bonding agents. The wool is lightly needled into one large sheet, secured by stitching all the way around under the bindings and only needs a few lines of stiching to secure the fabric to the wool, this technique gives our duvets a superb drape that gently envelopes the body.
The unique natural properties of wool resist dust mites and can help to relieve the symptoms of allergies or asthma. Wool is also naturally breathable, helping to keep warm in the Winter and cool in the Summer, creating a sleeping environment unique to each person. This makes wool duvets a perfect solution for partners sleeping under one duvet with differing body temperatures.
Easy to care for, simply refresh by airing - wool is naturally anti-bacterial and refreshes itself with airing. For a more thorough clean, you can machine wash on a wool setting using a wool care detergent, spin out any excess water and air dry.
Both Summer (Lightweight) and Spring/Autumn (Medium Weight) weight wool duvets are available – you can even buy one of each and fasten them together using the discreet fabric ties to make a cosy, Winter weight wool duvet.

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.
