The Crescent Moon alpaca wool comforter uses a blend of 70% alpaca wool/30% sheep’s wool for these warm, cozy comforters. Interestingly, these are as warm as down comforters, but less fill is needed to keep you warm so you won’t get hot and sweaty underneath. In short, alpaca wool comforters are an excellent alternative for those who cannot tolerate down.
Why Alpaca Wool? Because it is warmer, stronger, lighter, and cleaner than sheep’s wool! It is believed to be the best possible filling available today to provide you with a warm, comfortable, healthy, and stress-free sleep. Further, an alpaca wool duvet will absorb up to 35% of its weight in moisture, keeping you dry and comfortable while you sleep.
Are Crescent Moon comforters hypoallergenic? Absolutely! First of all, the wool is grown without herbicides in a stress-free environment, and the animals are not dipped in pesticide baths. Secondly, the wool is chemical-free as it doesn’t use any chemicals, dyes, or bleaches during the processing. This wool does not contain lanolin or grease. Finally, this porous, naturally dry, clean fill prevents dust mites and other allergens from settling in.

Care of Crescent Moon Alpaca Wool Comforter
- Always use a duvet cover to preserve your customer.
- Most importantly, the machine should never be agitating, as that will shrink the wool.
- Wash as little as possible; spot clean when possible
- Finally, occasionally air outside to keep fresh. It is amazing what the sun and fresh air will do for your comforter!

This is a huge customer favorite! The all-season weight is perfect for our new England nights. It’s lightweight but cozy warm, and the 70% alpaca and 30% sheep’s wool helps regulate your temperature during the night. Treat yourself to this and don’t forget the matching mattress pad.

I have the all season weight. It is really the best comforter I have ever owned. I love the outside cotton fabric, it has a crisp sound to it and feels so cozy! It is lighter weight as the alpaca is a lightweight fiber, it does not feel heavy but keeps you so warm. I use it almost year round, I’m always sad when the weather warms up and I can no longer use it (although that is only a few weeks in July and August for me, as I am always cold). It fits perfectly in the Coyuchi duvet covers which are great as well!
This has been an amazing addition to my sleep quality. I read many reviews about different comforter types and I simply started out knowing I wanted something organic and from a good company that created its products with respect to everyone involved. My problem with sleep is that I would go to sleep cold, then wake up in the middle of the night completely sweating under my medium weight down comforter. I read in several places that I would not have this problem with wool. However, I was hesitant because wool makes my skin break out. After a clothing/materials specialist told me that people were often not actually allergic to wool, but to the additives and oils used in the production process, I decided to give Crescent Moon a try (as they are very clear they don’t use a lot of these additives). I ordered the lightweight comforter and am extremely pleased with it. I warm up right away when I go to sleep and feel cozy, and no longer wake up in the middle of the night hot. I ordered the lightweight as it doesn’t get that cold where I live (we often don’t have heat in buildings but you need something when it gets in the low 60s at night inside). I didn’t like the ‘crisp’ sound of it at first (the outside material) but it didn’t bother me after the first day. I have it covered with an organic linen duvet cover and my mattress has a cotton/wool pillowtop. I’m finally sleeping without waking up due to temperature changes and am very happy with my purchase!
