Crescent Moon specializes in the manufacture of bedding from alpaca wool. Alpaca wool, compared to sheep wool, is lighter, warmer, cleaner, and stronger. Because alpaca wool is naturally porous, it absorbs more moisture than sheep wool, thus creating a drier environment that discourages the growth of allergens.
Furthermore, the alpacas are raised in totally organic environments – free of pesticides and chemicals. The wool is also free of chemicals like dyes and bleaches. This means the bedding is healthier for you and the environment.
Let’s quickly review the Crescent Moon bedding line:
Crescent Moon Pillow Covers – NEW! These protective pillow covers zip up to block dust mites from invading your pillow; more important, they block allergenic dust mite feces from escaping into the air. If you suffer from dust allergies, a simple pillow cover could eliminate your symptoms.
While most dust mite covers are made from synthetic materials like polyester (which makes them hot, noisy, and uncomfortable), Crescent Moon pillow covers are made from 100% cotton. They’re also available in 100% organic cotton.
Crescent Moon Duvet – Filled with 70% alpaca wool and 30% sheep wool, this duvet is not only hypoallergenic but also incredibly versatile. It’s light enough for the summer yet warm enough for the coldest winter nights.
I tend to get hot when I sleep, and I cannot sleep under a hot, heavy comforter. The Crescent Moon duvet is the ideal weight, and it absorbs moisture, making a dry, comfortable sleep environment. It also comes with a natural cotton cover to block dust mites!
Crescent Moon Mattress Pad – The Crescent moon mattress pad offers the fluffy softness of down without all the allergy problems. Add a layer of dreamy comfort to your mattress and relax in your allergy-free zone. We recommend Crescent Moon mattress pads to people who sweat at night. The alpaca wool does a great job of absorbing moisture that would otherwise attract mold and dust mites.
Crescent Moon Pillow – When’s the last time you bought a new pillow? If it’s been a while, there’s a good chance that it houses millions of dust mites. That’s right, millions. For those of us who are allergic to dust mites, the pillow must be considered as a major cause of allergies. After all, your nose is right next to the pillow all night long!
The Crescent Moon pillow is filled with 70% alpaca wool and 30% sheep wool to replicate the softness of down. It is just a bit firmer and fluffier than most down pillows – and it’s much more hygienic. Plus, it comes with a protective pillow cover so that dust mites cannot get inside.
