Though double duvets are common, spotting double covers might be easier said than done. So, make sure that you have the exact measurements of your duvet while scouting for the matching covers. Never buy covers by going by the label sizes as these need not ensure perfect fitting always. If you have a very soft and fluffy duvet, remember to add in a little for the extra height. Very tight covers could spoil the smooth and soft texture of duvets so it is very important to get the right dimensions before purchasing duvet covers.
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.
In many places in Europe it's even common for two, single size duvets to be placed on a queen or larger size bed. The advantage to this can be that for couples they can have individualized thicknesses of the duvet and it also solves the perennial problem of one person stealing the covers. Did I say different thicknesses? Yes, duvets and duvet covers can have different tog ratings to refer to different heat retention capabilities. Higher tog ratings translate into a warmer cover. These days the filling of a duvet doesn't have to be down, but can be most any other fiber that is used for quilting material from man made to natural materials the variety is really up to the preference of the buyer. Some will want to avoid down for allergy reasons for instance.
There are also different fabrics used to make duvet covers. You can choose a fabric that will be perfect for the current season or the place where you live. For instance, a duvet cover made of cotton is perfect for warm areas because cotton is very comfortable. It 'breathes,' just like most natural fabrics. If you want a fabric that will keep you warm, cozy, and snug in winter months, you can buy a velvet cover. In really hot places like tropical countries, it is okay to use the cover by itself without the comforter to make it cooler. You can use it to cover the mattress.
In case you are planning to buy designer duvet covers, be ready to put in more care and caution in its upkeep. Made from special materials, these covers might need soft cleaning and special storage. Duvet might vary in their prices depending on various factors like quality of the stitching, type of fabric and the brand name. These are available as separate pieces or as a set.
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.
