Why Choose Alpaca?
Crescent Moon uses 100% natural, organically grown alpaca wool. Alpaca fiber is hollow, making it one of the warmest natural fibers available. It is also very light and soft so we add some sheep wool to hold the fibers apart and produce more loft. This incorporates more air into your duvet which will then act as an insulator, keeping you warm and comfortable.
Alpaca fiber's porous nature is naturally dry and clean which prevents dust mites and other allergens from settling in. Recent research has found that dust mites are one of the most common causes of asthma and allergies in the bedroom.
The shorn animals are raised in a pesticide free environment and their wool is a renewable resource. No chemicals, dyes or bleaches are used when the wool is processed. We use only 100% organic cotton fabric so the whole product is 100% biodegradable at the end of its long life. Alpaca fiber loves fresh air and will re-loft when put outside for a few hours. Our products are also washable – with care. Please refer to our washing instructions.
Sleep Well and Easy
People who sleep with wool get a longer, more restful sleep – up to 15% longer and deeper. Your morning bed-making is less stressful as well. We recommend the use of a duvet cover so you just give the duvet one good shake over the bed and you are ready to start your day!
I took it out of its storage bag, spread it out and spent time just studying its assembly, feeling the light weight, and the look and feel of its fluffiness.
It warms up to my body's needs so quickly and keeps me uniformly warm all night.
This investment has been a long time in happening and I am still so excited that this dream has finally come true.
To paraphrase Sam Spade (The Maltese Falcon, Dashiell Hammett), '...stuff that dreams are made of.'
