The HEFEL Bio Hemp quilt impresses with its excellent ability to store warmth and its strong environmental track record. The hemp filling owes its warming characteristics to the air-trapping hollow fibres, making hemp the warmest of all plant fibres. Hemp is an ecologically valuable crop and extremely environmentally-friendly to cultivate. No pesticides are required to grow it, it does not need much water and yields are very high.
The HEFEL Bio Hemp comforter is also 100% vegan. And not only that - the Bio Hemp comforters provide a real alternative to synthetic fillings for those allergic to animal hair and dust mites.
In 2019 the HEFEL Bio Hemp quilt has been awarded the "Austria Product of the Year 2019" prize in the bedding products category.
