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.
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.
Also. with the passage of time comforters began to be made of materials that are more easily cleaned. leading to comforters that are decorative in themselves. not necessarily requiring a duvet cover. One last step in reaching the duvet covers used today took place when the first homemaker became tired of her decorative comforter and realized that she could cover it with a duvet cover to produce a fresh new bedroom look. Blankets and quilts can also be used as duvet inserts. so whether one of these preceded the decorative comforter as a duvet insert is not really known.
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.
