I wanted a natural alternative to down or the multitude of other non-natural fillings for a duvet. I happened across the option of wool and read quite a bit about it, which appeared to be very impressive. If I was going to spend the money on good linen bedwear, why not also get the wool duvet for warmth and the inherent properties? What I had not taken into account was the weight. I purchased a queen size and while the quality is excellent, the weight of it was a real struggle for me as I am older and have arthritic hands. So the shaking, rotating and getting into the duvet cover was a huge challenge. I was not able to do that as often as is recommended for the first few weeks. That certainly doesn’t detract from the duvet itself. It is certainly worth the money. It also took a little bit of getting used to in regards to the weight of the blanket on my legs as I have been used to very light coverings. If I had help with the shaking out and changing bedclothes I would have no hesitation if purchasing again.
