Bambi Luxura Alpaca Wool Fleece Blend Quilt
This alpaca quilt is warm without being heavy and keeps you comfortable all night long. It is made from a luxurious 60/40 blend of Australian Alpaca Fleece & Pure New Wool.
The alpaca doona's quilted cover is 100% cotton, woven with a sateen texture that gives your bedroom a finished appearance. The quilt's benefits are derived both from quality craftsmanship by the Australian family-owned company that makes this range of alpaca bedding, and from the natural and inherent properties of alpacas' fleece.
Alpaca fleece is renowned for holding warmth even in thin, light layers, but allowing air to breathe through the fibre, an aspect that's very much in evidence in this alpaca quilt. Wool is a natural healthy choice, and an environmentally friendly resource.

Benefits of Alpaca Fleece
Alpacas... and why their fleece is perfect for bedding
Alpacas originated from the Altiplano in Peru and were bred by the Incas for their luxuriant, silky fleeces, which the Inca's hailed as 'The Fibre of the Gods'.
At that time, the fleeces were extremely rare and were only worn by the very wealthy or royalty - in fact the Inca's considered Alpaca fibre to be more important than silver or gold.
How the Fleece is obtained
An Alpaca fleece is obtained in much the same way a sheep's fleece is obtained - the fleece is simply shorn off the Alpaca about once a year. No Alpacas are harmed or injured in any way - they simply get a haircut.
Alpaca is a super-soft fibre. It does not have scales on the fibre, making it naturally smooth & soft. There are many different types of Alpaca, but the best, which Bambi use, is Super Fine Alpaca fleece. At around 16-18 microns, this fleece has the feel of cashmere. (To give an understanding of how fine Super Fine Alpaca is, most human hair is at least 100 microns - 5 times thicker than alpaca fibre).
Alpaca is a completely hollow fibre, meaning it has a massive propensity for trapping heat while, at the same time, being extremely lightweight. In tests conducted by the Yocum-McCall Testing Laboratories, alpaca fibre was shown to be three times warmer than sheep's wool.
