The ultimate refinement of alpaca wool to dress the bed. Alpaca wool provides unparalleled comfort and luxury; it is soft, warm, light and breathable. Once sheared, the wool is first gently washed and slowly dried, and then carefully sorted out in order to keep the best fibers only. The whole process relies on traditional tools and techniques, using organic and natural washing agents. No chemicals are used at any point. The quilting is delicately executed in order to guarantee the duvet’s perfectly balanced, even structure. The outer shell is made of a special breathable cotton percale that was specifically developed by Italian weavers in collaboration with Le Chardon.
Le Chardon was founded in 2015 by three cousins of French-Polish descent, driven by their passion for traditional farming and textiles. Together they acquired a beautiful farm nested in the mountains of Lower Silesia, in Poland, where they started breeding a five-generation-alpaca herd. Their high-quality wool is the material of choice for Le Chardon exclusive duvets, all handmade on-site in the farm’s textile laboratory.
