67% of adults in the UK suffer from disturbed and restless sleep. Poor sleep can lead to health problems as this is when our bodies repair cells, fight illness, and rejuvenates itself.
THE SECRET TO A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP
Remember, the secret to a good night’s sleep is to go into a deep, dormant state, when our blood pressure must drop, our heart rate must go down, but most of all, our temperature has to drop. Under normal duvet fillings, polyester, feather and even the most expensive down duvet, only one thing can happen during the night, your temperature will rise because they are all insulators. So during the night you toss and turn or throw the duvet off in order to cool your body down. THIS LEADS TO DISTURBED SLEEP.
But help is at hand with our BRITISH MADE WOOL DUVET, A BAAVET, finely combed pure wool encased in high quality 100% cotton outer (a 240 thread count percale).
A Baavet is made completely of natural materials. It’s a world class product.
So much for the sales pitch, (which is all true). What about some meat on the bone, as they say?
If you are of a certain age, and by that I am sure you know what I mean, you will remember what I am going to say; and for those whose memories don’t go that far back.....aren’t you lucky.
There was a time when everyone in the UK slept under wool, by wool, I mean blankets. They were lovely and cosy and warm but weren’t they heavy? By the time the middle of winter arrived, and with no central heating and possibly only one fire in the house, we were tucked in under three blankets and possibly a quilt. And by tucked in I mean well tucked in so you could hardly move. And weren’t they itchy? And all those blankets, when you had to make the bed. Oh happy days.
Then after the Second World War people (that’s ordinary people like me) started to go abroad and discovered the finer things of life like red wine (or white), French cheeses, and the continental quilt. Yes, your humble duvet was once called a continental quilt, well it sounds exotic; and it was quite revolutionary. We finally decided to call it a duvet so no more itchy, heavy blankets and it was nice and snugly at night. With the bonus that you didn’t have to make the bed, just shake it out!
But since then times have changed; no more Jack frost on the inside of the window; most people have some kind of central heating; and of course double glazing.
Our houses have become warmer, our bedrooms are warmer and our duvets seem to have become much hotter, even when we TOG rate right down to a 4 or 2 TOG.

BUT WOOL IS A TEMPERATURE REGULATOR
Not many people know that a sheep’s wool is how it regulates its temperature. Think about it, where are all the dead sheep in a heat wave with their big woolly coats, they may pant a bit but they don’t die. Wool is the only fibre on the planet that can do this due to the structure of each fibre.
WOOL IS NATURALLY WICKING; it’s the way a sheep sweats. So your temperature is regulated and any moisture from your body is wicked away. The secret again is in the structure of the fibres which are hollow and absorb moisture leaving the surface of the fibre dry. Wool can absorb 30% of its own weight in moisture. Excess moisture is then wicked away. This means that there are no mould and mould spores responsible for so many allergies.
DUSTMITES HATE WOOL and can’t survive because of the very dry nature of the surface of the fibres.
WOOL IS NATURALLY ANTI BACTERIAL, bacteria cannot survive in wool
A synthetic, feather, or down duvet will retain your moisture which in turn will encourage dust mites and mould growth. These duvets can be home to tens of thousands of dust mites and their droppings, so a Baavet is ideal if you suffer from asthma or allergies.
BUT A WOOL DUVET IS NATURALLY HYPOALLERGENIC. It’s resistant to mould growth, and it inhibits dust mites
THEREFORE no sweat; no moisture; no dust mites; and no bacteria; making wool incredibly clean
Normally you don’t have to wash your Baavet duvet; you simply need to air it on a fine sunny day. (For serious soiling see the care label)
AND IT’S TOTALLY SUSTAINABLE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY.
BUT ARE WOOL DUVETS TOG RATED? Not exactly, because TOG rating measures the heat value of fillings but wool regulates heat. However the more wool in a duvet the warmer it will be, like a mountain sheep which has a big heavy fleece to with stand extreme weather conditions which is much warmer than lowland sheep which has lighter fleece; obvious when you think about it really.
So we have 4 Baavet duvet options and approximate TOG ratings, remember wool is both cooler and warmer than other duvet fillings and not everyone is the same nor is every house.
Super Light (2-4 tog); Light (4-8 tog); Medium (8-12 tog) and Winter weight (12+ tog).
When choosing your duvet, just think of what Tog you use mainly during the year; and how cold your house is.
But DONT WORRY we will change your Baavet if you pick the wrong one with our NO QUIBBLE 30 DAY RETURN’S POLICY
AND HOW LONG WILL YOUR BAAVET LAST? If you Love your Baavet AND you look after it, then it should last a lifetime.
YOU CAN’T BUY BETTER WOOL BEDDING THAN BAAVET.... FROM EWE TO YOU
