The only tricky part about having a duvet is getting the cover on, and the difficulty can be easily remedied with a few tips. Especially with king sized duvets, it is helpful to spread the duvet out completely flat on the bed. Turn the cover inside-out with the bottom seam of the duvet and the cover lined up. Through the duvet cover, grasp the corners of the duvet itself and lift your arms, allowing the cover to fall around the duvet. Shake it out while keeping a secure hold on both the duvet and the cover and secure it in place once it is completely encased. Duvet covers are a great investment for anyone hoping to protect their duvets.
You should also check the thread count of the cover. When you see the term 'thread count' or 'TC' in the product's label, this means the number of thread per square inch. Some covers have a 100 TC while others can have more than 1000 TC. If you want a really soft cover for your bedding, something that is very comfortable, you should choose a higher TC. The higher the TC, the softer the cover will be. If you want a good quality cover, a 300 TC is okay.
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.
The main benefit of duvet covers is that it protects your comforter or duvet form dirt or stain. The main reason why you buy a duvet cover is because you do not want to wash your comforter all the time. It is easier to wash the cover than the duvet or comforter itself because it is lighter. It is also cheaper than the comforter. You will not feel as bad if something went wrong with the cover. Even though duvet covers can also be expensive, at least they are not as expensive as the comforter. You can easily replace the cover with a fresh new one to have a comfortable sleep.
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.
From this practical and utilitarian beginning in a European peasant hut, the duvet cover has developed to include being the center of a modern bedroom decor. It still protects, but it has also become a fashion item that is easily changed and stored. The original comforters and covers were plain and drab, but eventually the cover's decorative possibilities were realized.
