The most incredible wool filled duvet

Filled with the finest wool of Europe, the Camargue duvet is a truly phenomenal wool duvet. Avilable in three fill weights to suit different preferences, climates and bedroom temperatures. Most Canadians will be well-served by the 300 gsm all-season weight if using year-round in a heated bedroom in winter (20°C or more)/ air conditioned homes with year-round use. Or by the 450 gsm winter version for cooler bedrooms. For strict summer use or human beings that closely resemble furnaces, we would recommend the 150gsm. 

Unlike typical wools, Mérinos d’Arles Antiques® is not mechanically crimped. This superior wool is naturally crimped. Mérinos d’Arles Antiques® is unique as the micron size of the fibres is comparable to that of cashmere. Most merino sheep's wool is approximately 24 μm, where-as Mérinos d’Arles Antiques® is approximately 17-19 μm. Fine cashmere is between 15-19 μm. The lower the number, the finer the fibre is.

This unique wool dates back to the Louis XVI days in France, Merino sheep were imported and cross bred with the sheep in France which are known for their exceptionally curly fleece. Remarkably the qualities of the fineness and the curliness were retained, producing a very unique, resilient and springy Merino wool. Over the passage of time and due to the wars that France had been through, the qualities of this special wool were lost as sheep were bred to produce higher yields of wool.  It was several decades ago that the owners of Brun de Vian Tiran were searching for this special wool in France, they had surveyed over 1,000 sheep farms in France, remarkably only finding the wool at 1 farm. These sheep still had the original blood lines of this special Merino wool intact, a piece of Frances culture and history, just as much as Brun de Vian Tiran themselves are. These sheep have since been bred and multiplied into around 3500 today which produce exlusively for Brun de Vian Tiran.  The finest wool in the whole of Europe with remarkable resilience and natural curliness without mechanical crimping make this a very special wool. 

This is easily the most luxurious wool duvet available today. The Mattress & Sleep Company has never encountered anything even moderately comparable.

In love with this duvet!!! Perfect weight for West Coast weather. Can't wait to get to bed and snuggle in for the night. The only drawback is I don't want to get up in the morning and leave the cozy nest it creates. Highly recommend - worth every penny!

Wow! Really a wow! Very light comparing to the fill! Really good quality! We are living in a house and we don't like too much warmth in the room ,but to be well covered while sleeping! All worthy the money! The duvet keeps the temperature constant. No hot no cold. And more than this it is light, cuddling, comes around you, wrapping not pulling the cover of the other sleeping besides.. We love it!!! We were concerned it is going to be too thick and too heavy, but it is not!!! Just perfect for our bed. Bonjour, la France ,merci beaucoup la France! And what a great idea for the store to import these products. Now we plan to buy a mattress pad from the same company. In the winter it will be a good addition and such a blessing!!!
