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.
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.
On a lighter note. in the 1990s in the UK. it became fashionable to take a "duvet day." This is kind of like a freebie day for work. If you are allowed one or more duvet days at your job. it means that you can call in as many duvet days as you have and take the day off for no defined reason. These can be taken even if you do not have vacation on the books or even if you are not ill. I always called them "mental health" days. but whatever you call them we need more of them in the States.
So what about when you are using a duvet? Well. that is where duvet covers come in. Essentially. a duvet cover would take the place of a set of sheets. because the duvet cover can be taken off the and washed as you would a set of sheets. It certainly seems that this would simplify the bed making process. since you would be replacing your top sheet. blanket and comforter with a simple duvet. You need only throw the duvet over the bottom sheet and you are done. Or. if you go the old fashioned way. you would have a duvet on the bottom and a duvet on the top. kind of like a sleeping bag with no zippers.
