Wouldn’t you though

It has to be said that duvets are pretty boring things. Warming, yes; essential in the winter, yes, but pretty dull to look at. Perhaps that’s why we wrap them in pretty covers to match our bedrooms.

But it wasn’t always like this – pretty eiderdowns once adorned the beds of the rich and famous, with a blend of silk material and goose or duck down. Thanks to a vintage revival (coupled with our love of Downton Abbey), eiderdowns are back in popularity.

Capitalising on this, Norfolk designer lady Chloe Lamb launched her company Counting Lambs two years ago, hand-making silk eiderdowns filled with goose down as a luxury item for the bedroom.

Her new range, Lambs, sees eiderdowns made at more competitive prices, with a blend of silk and pearl coloured cotton and duck down.

Made to order, eiderdowns can be woven into six patterns, including coiffered (pictured) and cross-web, and ordered in cot, single, double, king or superking sizes. As you would expect, the top side can be made up in any colour – just contact Chloe or her team for a swatch book.
