I’ve been wanting to do a video review for a while, but my desire to be behind the camera in front of it presented a bit of problem in terms of how I would do it. I decided to wing it, and the result is my first review for an Alpaca Wool Organic Duvet sent to me by the wonderful folks at Saplings, an eco-company in Canada that sells sustainable decor for kids. My daughter deserves kudos for her performance So here goes nothing:
If you’re reading this via email, you may have to visit the site to view the video.
There were a couple of things that I neglected to mention. Chalk it up to stage fright The duvet came in an awesome organic cotton sack that we are now using as a laundry bag. I definitely appreciated the lack of plastic packaging, because nothing can ruin a great green product faster than inconsiderate and downright wasteful packaging.
I also neglected to mention the price. The twin duvet costs $400. It may seem pricey, but trust me when I tell you that I appreciate its value. I have no worries about what my daughter is being exposed to as she sleeps, and as I did mention in the video, I will likely never have to buy another twin duvet or comforter. If the desire to change my daughter’s room decor strikes (and I know it will), all I’ll have to do is replace the cover. This is great for a couple of reasons. It will save me money in the long run because covers cost less than duvets, and it will save lots of space. Consider the difference between folding and storing a set of sheets and doing the same for a bulky comforter. Big difference, right?
It is available in crib size, twin and double (full), though larger sizes are available upon request.
Why It’s Green:
- Made of alpaca wool and organic cotton
- Comes in a resuable organic cotton sack
