Audrey Petty Duvet Cover July 11th, 2018 - 12:25:02
One important aspect to look at when choosing a duvet is the duvet cover. A duvet cover looks like a giant pillow case that covers your duvet. Duvets are filled with down or soft materials to make them more comfortable. To change the look of your duvet, all you need to do is to replace the duvet cover.
However, choosing the best duvet cover is not as easy as it seems. If you want some tips, read the paragraphs below about choosing the best cover for your duvet.
Washing a comforter or duvet can be a difficult task because it is huge, heavy, and cumbersome, especially a king size duvet. Some also require special washing instructions. If you fail to follow these care instructions, your pricey duvet will get damaged and will go to waste. Moreover, you might need to go to the Laundromat because these big comforters may not fit in your regular washer at home. You have to sue a powerful, heavy duty washer which can only be found in Laundromats.
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.
Many people fail to understand the differences between duvets, quilts and comforters. Quilts are usually thinner and are known for their intricate stitching patterns. Quilts are a double layer of blanket stuffed with one kind of filling or another to make it thick and soft. Duvets are giant bed-sized bags filled with features, or down, from birds. The word "duvet" is a French word which means "down."
Like many American men I must confess that the first time I heard someone refer to a Duvet or Duvet Cover, I had no idea what they could be referring to. In fact I think it's probably been less than two years ago that I first heard of a Duvet and I'm in my thirties. So, I suspect that I'm not the only person that hadn't heard of a duvet or a duvet cover or would even have an idea of where one might be found. For those of you that don't know, it's related to bedding. Coming from a tradition where we had sheets, blankets, quilts, covers and spreads I really was somewhat surprised when I started reading about the idea of a duvet or duvet cover.
