Special Allergen blocking pillow covers and duvet-covers give the allergy sufferers a nightmare-free sleep due to its special tight weave of the fabric. Even after frequent washing the fabric remains soft and snug trapping the allergens and preventing breakouts.
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.
Silk duvets come in two kinds. The first is a duvet that has silk fibers on the inside, but it's really covered by cotton. These are soft and all, but not really as good as silk duvets with silk coverings. These types of duvets work really well because you get all the benefits of silk. They are hypoallergenic, they regulate your temperature really well, and they don't aggravate allergies or asthma.
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.
Another important consideration is what do you want your duvet cover made of. There are many fabrics and many different types of duvets. Some are just covers and some come with extra padding. If you are going for some real luxury, then you should really try a silk duvet. These are incredibly soft, but they are also tough to find.
Some of these duvet covers are not designed for traditional washing. Most of them may need to be dry washed to remove dirt without damaging the cloth. However cotton and blended materials are washable at home and all you need to do is to follow the washing instructions carefully.
