A Guide to Buying Duvets. Walking into the bedding section of a store. you are usually given ample choices when it comes to design and fabric that it is quite easy to forget a few other details that really matter. On the other hand. when you walk into the store knowing what you are looking for. you will most likely leave with a good buy.
What is a Duvet Comforter Cover? Duvets originated in Europe. and were made from down feathers of the eider duck. which is known for its usefulness as an insulator and is called eider down. So what exactly is a duvet? A duvet is essentially a bag filled with feathers. that you use as a blanket. So. you may be wondering. what exactly is the difference between a duvet and a comforter? Well. a comforter is to be used in conjunction with other bedding. The traditional use for a comforter is you make your bed with a bottom sheet. a top sheet. one or more blankets. and then the comforter on top. A duvet however is usually used all by itself. When using a duvet. the common practice is that you do not use sheets or blankets. you use only a duvet.
Duvets are mostly filled with down. cotton. feathers or alternative fills that include synthetic fabrics. silk or wool. While duck down and goose down duvets are seen as rather luxurious. synthetic duvets have been catching up and nowadays can give duck down or goose down a run for their money. Also. if you or your children are prone to allergies. you should opt for duvets that are filled with hypodown or other such anti allergic filling.
Natural duvets add style and class to your bedroom. All the duvets are designed to drape and snuggle your body. thus keeping you warm and cosy during your sleep. Plus. natural fillings allow your body to breath and create the perfect temperature to keep you warm on those cold winter nights. However. the best aspect of all duvets is that they reduce the need of continuously making up your bed every morning as they are single covers which replace the need for a combination of bed sheets. blankets. quilts or other bed coverings. This is widely available. and there are even accessories which come with it such as a quilt cover which saves the original duvet from getting dirty.
