Who is Aumore Wool, and what do you specialise in?

Aumore Wool is an Australian artisan wool quilt and underblanket manufacturer. Aumore genuinely puts its heart and soul into its products, as well as the most premium materials Mother Nature can provide. We have an extremely strong understanding of Australian wool standards and regulations, as well as design principles and applications. This results in exceptionally unique high-end quality products.

How do you compare with other Australian wool quilt and underblanket manufacturers?

Aumore Wool does not compare itself with other manufacturers – our products are one of a kind. We’ve embarked upon a journey of love, which means these products are designed and created with painstaking care and effort. Aumore’s design and manufacturing teams treat its products as a reflection of their own identities. We are all extremely proud of what we’ve achieved, and what we are working towards.

Is your wool 100% Australian?

Yes, Aumore Wool only uses 100% Australian Downs and Merino wools, bred and grown on the backs of Australian sheep. All of our wool is processed onshore in Australia. Once the wool reaches our factory in Melbourne, all of the inherent manufacturing processes for our wool quilts and underblankets are done in-house. Professionals who add a range of hand-made touches to our products staff our factory.

How soft are your quilts?

Aumore Wool quilts and blanket covers are made from 100% long staple cotton, and Egyptian cotton. Both of these cotton fibres are renown globally for their softness, especially after they’ve been through the combing process. The result is cotton that is extremely soft to the touch and comfortable when laid against one’s bare skin. In addition, as our quilts and underblankets use Downs wool, Merino wool, and alpaca fleece, the softness of our cotton is accentuated by the thick, luxurious layer residing beneath. The result is simply a regal sleeping experience.

Will your quilt keep me warm in winter?

This is a very interesting question with a number of variables affecting each specific situation. First of all, each individual person has his or her own preferred sleeping temperature. Some people are ‘hot sleepers’, which means their body generates a lot of heat, and therefore they do not like a quilt that is too thick. Conversely, ‘cold sleepers’ do not generate a lot of body heat when sleeping, and so often desire a quilt with a thicker layer of wool fill inside.

Essentially, one needs to realise the quilt itself doesn’t generate heat – what matters is which type of sleeper you are. Aumore Wool 100% premium Downs wool quilts breathe incredibly well, which means your quilt won’t get too warm in the summer, nor too cold in the winter. However, we always recommend you choose the level of wool thickness (300g/500g/600 grams per square metre) you think will best suit the type of sleeper you are.

Will your quilts be too hot for me to sleep with in summer?

Please see Question 5. 100% Downs wool combined with premium long staple cotton and/or Egyptian cotton means Aumore Wool quilts breath exceptionally well, and are comfortable when touching the skin. Wool is renowned for adjusting to the body temperature of the person lying beneath it. If you think about it, sheep can handle extreme cold as well as intense heat. The reason for this is wool’s ability to both insulate and breathe depending on external temperatures and how they affect the animals’ body overall temperature.
