Where can I buy bedding made from exotic or fine wools?

Hi There, I'm looking for luxury bedding of exotic woolens. Cashmere, Alpaca, Yak, Vicuna, etc. Sheets, blankets, duvet covers, pillow cases, etc. I really love fine quality wools and really dislike cotton in general. Can you please point me to some brands and online retailers to purchase such items from?

While Frette has cotton products, they also have many woolens...not so much in sheets, but in blankets, duvets, etc.

The most luxurious animal fiber I can think of is qiviut, the downy insulating undercoat of the musk ox. I suggest you contact the Oomingmak co-op (at that link.) I have heard of qiviut blankets being raffled, but not sold. Perhaps they can provide more information.

Garnet Hill has a few wool blankets. Here is one made of baby alpaca and wool.

I doubt you'll find wool bedsheets, as washing them regularly would be a problem. If you don't like cotton, how do you feel about linen?
