Why Southdown Wool?
In theory, almost any wool can be used to make a duvet – you will find perfectly acceptable Cross Breed or Texel products on the market, for example.
However, only Southdown wool makes an exceptional duvet. This is because of the very dense physical properties of Southdown wool. It has a short staple, which is the length of an individual fibre – about 2-3 inches. This makes the wool soft, very bouncy, similar to cloud-like cotton wool which lends itself to the perfect duvet filling. The technical term is “loft” and the loftier the wool, the better it contributes to fine bedding.
