The ultimate duvet to keep you warm in winter.
Don’t compromise on getting the best possible night’s sleep. A Karoo Creations Premium Winter Duvet is the Rolls Royce of duvets – phenomenal quality, only the best materials and made to last a lifetime.
Handcrafted in the Karoo, we have worked hard to create the most luxurious, comfortable 100% wool duvets to help the environment in our own small way.
Each duvet is filled with beautifully soft hard carded pure wool. This means the perfect duvet for the colder South African winter nights. This is a heavier winter duvet, with a beautiful lofty 800 to 850 grams of wool per m/2. This equates to a TOG rating of approximately 15 – 17, so perfectly suited to the chillier months of the year. Our duvet is perfect for sleepers who prefer a bit more weight on the bed, live in a colder property or part of the country.
Kinder to the planet
Our duvets contain no petrochemical derivative products (as found in plastic polyester or down alternative duvets), and decompose naturally within 5 years. During the decomposition process, no microplastics will be leached into the ground water supply, or into the soil. Many experts have published reports that plastic (micro-fibre / fibre-fill / etc) duvets take up to 500 years to decompose.
Kinder to animals
While many salespeople of down duvets say that their fillings come from ethical sources, the truth is much of the down is imported from China where live plucking of geese and ducks is still very common – not very well known for its animal rights. Many of these “voluntary associations” preach about their commitment to ethical sourcing, but the sad reality is that most birds are either live plucked or destined for the food chain.
Our wool is sourced from farmers who employ very experienced shearers to give their sheep their yearly haircuts, much like a spoiled pooch needs a visit to the parlour every now and again. These wool farmers all subscribe to ethical treatment of their animals and their lands. Shearing a sheep is not as traumatic as is made out by some militant animal rights organisations, and it is a necessity for the health and well being of the animal.
Kind to you
Wool does not attract dust mites at all so it is perfect for allergy sufferers. Feathers and down will start to produce a fine dust during their natural decomposition process that can also trigger hayfever if the dust escapes through a fabric casing that is not of good quality.
Wool also absorbs moisture (think sweat), unlike down or plastic, and it allows this moisture to naturally evaporate through its fibres, so there is less chance of unseen mould or moisture in your duvet.
Wool is a natural thermoregulator, so our duvets are ideal for couples because each person’s individual body temperature will be regulated by the wool, giving each person a comfortable night’s rest without throwing the duvet off onto the other person, or having to hang a foot out of the covers to cool down.
Made to order
Our duvets are specifically made to order, and our delivery lead time is up to 28 days. Because we manufacture in a small town in the Karoo, our couriers only collect on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We will however endeavour to get your delivery out to you as soon as possible.
