Many people know what a duvet cover is, but what is a duvet ("due-vay"), and where does it come from? In the United States, we hear the phrases "duvet covers" and "down comforters" and overall, most people know what those items are. In other countries such as Canada and Europe, "duvet" refers to the actual comforter (down comforter) and the cover is the protection to the duvet much like a pillowcase is to a pillow. Duvet is a French word that translates to "down" (referring to the down in birds); this is where the United States gets the phrase "down comforter". As a result, a "duvet cover" refers to the covering of a duvet/down comforter.
Before we look at their importance, let us first try to understand what duvets are and where they originated from. A duvet is just like a bag filled with warm fabrics like feathers or wool. Duvets originated from the French and it basically means down. Many people do not know the difference between a duvet and a comforter. There is a very big difference but they both serve the same purpose. A comforter in contrast is sewn all round whereas the duvet has an outer cover which resembles that of a pillow case.
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.
Do you see a new duvet cover in your short-term future? If so, it should be a bright spot on your horizon. But it is a bright spot that would fade significantly if you have to return the cover after the purchase. To help avoid this, as you get ready to shop, make and keep in mind three decisions related to the size, comfort level and style of your new duvet cover. With a good set of criteria in hand, you are much more likely to be happy with the duvet cover that you choose.
If you have a good bed and a great bedroom then you need a great duvet cover. Not to mention you will probably have around three that you can change throughout the year. I hope that you learned some good info on duvets, especially silk ones.
duvet covers are the ones that encase the duvet. When we say duvet or duvet covers we may mean the full complement of the duvet and the cover. They're substantial enough to cover the beds and make them warm when you want to use them.
