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.
The duvet story begins a few centuries ago with down comforters in Europe and silk comforters in Asia. Both comforters required a significant amount of time to make. which gave them value. Also. both types are excellent insulators. but neither one was happy being washed in the local stream nor are they happy in a modern washer.
Construction of a duvet. The external material used in most duvets is cotton as it is both economical and comfortable. However. you do have options of silk or cotton-silk blend duvets too. The thread count for duvets is almost always high as the filling may tend to seep out otherwise. It is also a good idea to invest in a duvet cover as it makes maintenance much easier. A duvet cover protects against spills and general wear and tear. If you are looking to go in for a change of colours and hues around the room. it`s much more cost effective to replace a duvet cover than a duvet itself.
Duvet Covers - Why They Keep Gaining in Popularity. Duvet covers have been around for a long time. but most Americans were not aware of them until relatively recently. Through the twentieth century their general acceptance and popularity has gone from obscure to a level where even many husbands know what they are. The development of the duvet will provide a little background to the advantages that duvet covers will bring to your decorating arsenal.
