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.
This development has resulted in the duvet cover of today being as much. if not more. of a fashion statement than just a protective covering. The overall duvet. insert and cover. have many advantages over alternate forms of bed covers. Some of the advantages that have boosted the popularity of duvet covers include The more expensive types of duvet inserts. down and silk comforters. are excellent insulators. making the combination of insert and cover very thin and light weight for the amount of insulation and warmth they provide. Other types of inserts that are now available. though not equal to down and silk comforters. still provide very good bed cover qualities.
If you are asthmatic or allergy-prone another option you could go for is silk duvet covers. Silk is a natural fibre and soothes the user into a blissful sleep. Though it could cost a little more than the regular cover. it gives an incomparable lavish look to your duvet. It is a good investment considering the anti-allergen effect it gives while also serving all seasons by staying warm in the winters and cool in the summers.
Tog rating. Pay attention to the tog rating of a comforter. The required tog rating may differ based on your comfort and the weather. A comforter with a 4.5 rating can keep you cool in summer. The more popular ones that work well for spring. autumn and sometimes even for all year use are the ones with the 9.0 and 10.5 tog rating. Duvets with a 13.5 tog rating are great for cold winters. You also have the option of combining two duvets together during winters - the duvets with the 4.5 rating and the ones with the 9.0 rating.
