No fiber better moderates your temperature than alpaca. By enclosing the alpaca fiber in 100% GOTS certified organic cotton percale, we’ve created one of the most breathable and functional duvet inserts in the world. What’s more, the insert won’t shift or bunch up on you. And in using organic, natural, and renewable materials, our Alpaca Duvet Insert marries sustainability with luxury, made with your health — and the planet’s — at the forefront of its design. The result is an incredible duvet insert with a small environmental footprint — in line with our mission.
Living in the harsh, wind-swept Andes at elevations above 12,000 feet, alpaca developed a highly sophisticated wool. It’s a natural wonder, prized for its gentle texture and unparalleled performance. It has the delicate feel of cashmere and the functionality of sheep’s wool. It's lightweight, temperature and moisture regulating, flame-resistant, antimicrobial, and hypoallergenic. Once reserved for Incan royalty, alpaca wool is now one of the most sought-after fibers in the world.
We craft our Alpaca Duvet Insert with best practices for safe, sustainable, and renewable textile manufacturing, in compliance with the Global Organic Textile Standard — the gold standard in environmental and social responsibility. The cotton percale encasing the natural alpaca fibers is 100% GOTS organic certified. Organic certified cotton is more breathable than synthetic alternatives. Our duvet insert is not just high-functioning, it’s also better for you, our farmers, and the planet, too. That’s because conventional cotton is a polluted crop grown with toxins. Our cotton is ethically grown in India without pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers.
Choose organic, natural materials inside and out. Our Alpaca Duvet Insert fits perfectly inside our Organic Linen Duvet Cover and our Organic Cotton Duvet Cover. We make both with certified organic natural materials that, like alpaca fiber, are renewable, safe, and highly breathable.
We craft our Alpaca Duvet Insert in two weights — all season and lightweight. The lightweight version is better-suited for warmer months and climates, while we design the thicker, all-season option for year-round snuggling. Keep in mind that alpaca wool and organic cotton are extremely breathable and thermoregulating — effectively moderating your body temperature so that you’re either cool or warm when you need to be. As a result, both weights will have versatile uses.
In 2019, Avocado Green Mattress became the first mattress company to become Climate Neutral Certified, effectively making our business “carbon neutral.” A year later, we took it a step further by going carbon negative — offsetting more carbon emissions than the company generates. Carbon offsets are vehicles for paying to remove carbon from the atmosphere or to prevent greenhouse gases from getting there in the first place by financing things like forest conservation or clean energy.

Alpaca fiber is renowned in the textile industry for its unparalleled sophistication. It has the delicate texture of cashmere, the luster of silk, and the functionality of sheep's wool. It's lightweight, temperature and moisture regulating, flame resistant, and antimicrobial. And we fill our Alpaca Duvet Insert with 100% Peruvian alpaca fiber. Our lightweight Alpaca Duvet Insert has 2,100 grams per square meter of 28-30 micron alpaca fiber. Our 4 season version has 2,800 grams per square meter of 28-30 micron alpaca fiber. To enclose the fiber, we stitch a layer of 100% GOTS organic certified cotton percale. We recommend a duvet cover — our Alpaca Duvet Insert pairs perfectly with our Organic Linen Duvet Cover and our Organic Cotton Duvet Cover.
The Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX®, certified by Hohenstein #18.HUS.40240. This ensures this product has passed strict testing for banned chemicals and harmful substances.
Protect your insert with our Organic Linen Duvet Cover or our Organic Cotton Duvet Cover. Spot clean the insert only. Occasionally place your Alpaca Duvet Insert outside in fresh air and direct sun to restore freshness. Frequent fluffing will help retain loft.

Carbon Negative Production & Shipping
Avocado is a carbon negative business. That means we voluntarily offset more than 100% of our emissions, from resource extraction to shipping, by supporting carbon offset projects through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation. Our offset projects help mitigate climate change and support innovation in addressing greenhouse gas emissions reductions.
