Buying direct from the manufacturer has many advantages.

We carry stock of all of our current bedding ranges including new releases such as the Alpaca Bamboo 300 and 600 quilt collections. Some retailers only carry limited stock and while they can offer you a personal shopping experience, the retailor may not have the Kelly & Windsor alpaca quilt style that best suits you in stock.

Our shipping policy will ensure your order leaves our factory the same or next day for a hassle free delivery. All on line purchases include free delivery anywhere in Australia which saves you time and expense. Kelly and Windsor is a customer focussed company.

As a customer, we also invite you to call us anytime regarding questions, recommendations or ideas for that special gift for someone which we can arrange and ship directly to them.

We also sell nationally to over 250 authorised retail stores and if you would prefer to buy from your local retailer we will offer the same support, advice and help with your purchase.

If you have a special size requirement, maybe for a boat or caravan, please call us and we can help you select the right style of quilt to suit your needs whatever they are.

We are very proud of the quality of our quilts, duvets, pillows and underblankets. Each article is inspected during each stage of the manufacturing process to ensure that only the finest quality is shipped out. If a fault is discovered during the manufacturing process, we will try to repair or make it good and if we can’t, it will be destroyed. Kelly & Windsor does not ship or sell any second quality quilts, doonas, duvets, pillows or underblankets – no questions, we just don’t do it!

All of the Kelly & Windsor’s Australia alpaca and wool bedding products come with our manufacturer’s quality guarantee as supplied with each Kelly & Windsor alpaca and wool bedding product. If for any reason you believe that there is a fault in the quality due to a manufacturing defect, please return the article to your retailer, or contact us.

Alpaca fleece does not contain Lanolin, which has been attributed to exacerbating allergy problems with some people.

Alpaca fleece is grown naturally without the need to drench and chemically clean the animals, as is required with sheep. After being shorn, the alpaca fleece is gently washed with organically certified detergents, (scouring and acid carbonizing are not required as with wool cleaning) and processed into the Kelly & Windsor alpaca quilts without the use of any chemicals.

At Kelly & Windsor, we believe that the best quilt fillings are pure natural fibres which are created and processed without using harmful chemicals and are environmentally friendly to the user and our world.

There are many different natural fibre fillings used in quilts which are available today, each with their own attributes and benefits. Please refer to our bedding filling section of this site for further information.

Yes, no problem. If you wish to buy on line and have the order sent to another person or address, say for a gift or present, we can arrange this for you.

The Kelly & Windsor bed quilts, underblankets and pillows can be purchased from any one of over 250 stores within Australia.

The correct answer to this question really depends upon the answer to several other questions -

Sleeper type – some people are “hot” in bed and some are “cold”. Each of these two conditions requires different quilt weight i.e. warmth, for the sleeper to experience a comfortable nights sleep. If you and your sleeping partner are different sleeping types i.e. one is hot, the other is cold, then you should consider a His & Her’s quilt to solve the problem.

Environment – What is your sleeping environment, i.e. no heating or cooling in the bedroom, is the bedroom centrally heated?  Your environment will be an important factor in the choice of a quilt to meet your needs. A building’s construction i.e. wall thickness, insulation and the evenness of night time temperatures, as well as what type of mattress is being used i.e. pillow top, low line or dual top styles needs to be considered when selecting your quilt.

Climate – Do you live in the tropics or in a cold climate?

In our experience, all of the above factors are important in selecting the right Kelly & Windsor quilt which you will enjoy for many years ahead.

Yes, there are significant differences.

Firstly, quilting is primarily required to keep the fibres or feather/down evenly spread over the whole quilt area. Otherwise the filling would literally move from one side to the other. In the past quilts were commonly made with vertical quilted sections which created channels running down the length of the quilt. This design was commonly promoted with the story that the filling could be “adjusted” between summer and winter by shaking the filling to one end. In reality, we suspect the reason for the channel design was simplicity i.e. cost and that there was limited mechanized quilting systems available in the early days as quilts were usually hand made.

“Channel” quilts are not desirable as the filling can move up and down the channel through normal use and the vertical stitching down the body line, is the coldest part of the quilt.

Diamond, squares, cassette quilting designs are preferable in modern quilts. They will hold the filling in one area and spread the stitching over the quilt.

However, the ideal quilt would have no stitching at all, as it would be softer (the stitches actually stiffens the quilt) and warmer without stitching.

Kelly & Windsor have released a new innovation in quilt design, “UltraSoft” which is patent pending. The new UltraSoft quilt design is a unique innovation of internally quilting the filling fibre, to prevent the filling from moving, which is then covered with the outer cover. Please refer to the News – New Products section of this site for further information.

Yes and no.

While the price usually is a guide for a products quality, it should not be the main factor in buying a quilt, pillow or underblanket.

A good quality quilt should with proper care last for five to ten years, although we recommend that bedding be replaced about every five years (every one or two years for pillows.) Even with proper care, over time quilts and underblankets do “wear out” with fibre breakage, moisture accumulation and extended use. Relative to a long time it is very important that you have a high quality of sleeping comfort which you frankly just cannot get with a poor quality quilt at the outset.

Over an eight year period, the difference between a high and low quality quilt is really only a few cents per night, so the initial purchase price isn’t that important compared to the quality of sleep that you deserve. The average person needs about eight hours per day of truly rejuvenating sleep which is about a third of one’s life – surely it worth buying the best!

Also, often a quilt’s price and your sleeping comfort is confused. Please consider what type of quilt you need apart from its price. If you live in a warm climate, e.g. northern Queensland you simply don’t on most accounts need a more expensive winter weight quilt or one that doesn’t breath i.e. isnt moisture absorbent. Equally, if you are hot and perspire a lot, a cheap quilt filled with a synthetic fibre will certainly worsen your sleeping comfort. Again over the life of a quilt, price isn’t really that important.

So, in this case price needs to be relative to your specific needs, sleeping conditions and personal situation.

None, they are all the same thing. Most of these names originate from various countries or regions i.e. a doona is from Scandinavia, a duvet is French, and a comforter is North American. They all relate to the same item i.e. a fibre or feather & down filled bedding cover.
No, we are sorry but we are unable to accept return of a quilt, pillow or underblanket that you have purchased on this site. This is due to Health Regulations.
