    Baavet - Pure English 100% wool duvet 40% off 25th Oct 12 at 11:10 AM
    I have one of these (I read about them in a thread here originally!), and they are just wonderful. This is the real deal made with pure proper wool, not inferior 'bonded' wool like Fogarty etc. They are normally quite expensive, but so worth it!
    The one on sale is the 3-4 season weight wool duvet which is IMHO the most useful and versatile of their duvet weights. This is a really good price - I paid a lot more for mine.

    Particularly good if you are allergic to dust mites in feather duvets and don't want to sleep under man-made fibres. Also the best for ladies 'of a certain age' because of the heat regulating qualities of wool.

    Oooh I really wish I could afford one, they look great. £60 is a bit much for me, totally worth it though I am sure.

    thanks for bringing them to my attention - I have a small guest house and have already bought Devon duvets, people always comment that they have slept really well.
    Tesco bought out some cheaper wool duvets and I rang to see where the wool comes from - Poland. As I doubt the sheep enjoy any standards of animal welfare there I wouldn't buy one of those.
    I'll try this baavet brand for my son, who is languishing under a horrible 'like down' lumpy thing at the moment. Cheers!

    Interesting - I can see a wool duvet would be perfect for a guest house, because unlike down or feather, you can't really trash it! They are as resilient as wool blankets, aren't they - you can jump up and down on them without damaging them! And they probably last for years and years without disintegrating or becoming dust. And they don't bunch up as polyester seems to do.

    I just love how simply comfortable they are. Never too hot, always just right (OK, mine is a bit too much in the height of summer!)

    My Baavet even smells woolly. It has just the faintest trace of lanolin in the smell.

    I have had a Fogarty wool duvet for just over three years and love it. When I put it on the bed I couldn't believe that it would be warm enough through the winter, but it is

    What is inferior "bonded" wool? Fogarty are made from 100% pure New Zealand wool, so don't understand.

    Too warm!

    I got one last time too and I can't use it in my small new-build as I boil under it!!
    I seldom end up where I wanted to go, but almost always end up where I need to be

    I work for Fogarty and can confirm that the wool we use is not inferior.

    Fogarty uses polypropolene in the construction of its wool duvets. Polypropolene is a man-made material and using it in the duvet negates the natural benefits of wool.

    I have the Fogarty wool duvet and have recently bought a Baavet and the difference is night and day. The Fogarty is really thin and doesn't keep me warm even in Spring or Autumn, the Baavet is so snuggly warm within seconds of slipping under it. It feels so right!

    In defence of the Fogarty wool duvet, I have one (paid £25-ish a couple of years ago) and I love it too.
    I'm sure these are also very nice - I definitely recommend any wool duvet and this is a great price!

    Baavet wool duvet
    I must say that I agree with the posts here that are in praise of Baavet products.
    Their duvets are beautiful, cosy and comfortable! Never too hot and never cold. I am now gradually putting them on all the beds in the house, and am sure they will stand the test of time.
    Their other products follow with their high standards in quality and manufacture.
    I have a Fogarty wool duvet . . . now not in use! The Baavet duvet has replaced it for good!
    Baavet is much snugglier and no polypropolene (which to me defeats the whole idea of something pure and natural . . . I didn't know it was there when I ordered the Fogarty duvet).
