The bets part about duvet covers is the fact that you can change the fashion of your bed and room very quickly. Comforters are usually very expensive and hard to store so owning many of them is out of the question. Duvets however are easy to store and much more affordable. So you can style with different types of fabric, different patterns, and even with different enclosures. You can go for a traditional button up enclosure or choose the very practical zipper.
Just because of a few unique characteristics of the duvet covers, most people are buying duvets. One of their unique facet is their maintenance. As a user you hardly need to worry about them because they are not hard to maintain at all. Of late, numerous people have appreciated this fact and,as a result, these covers have leapfrogged to the apex on their popularity scale in the United States of America and the whole of Europe to name a few areas.
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.
These imports from Europe have become adapted bed mates by many American families. When these flat bed covers first arrived in the U.S. they were stuffed with feathers or down feathers from geese or ducks. Down feathers are the soft feathers under the top feathers nearest to the skin. Birds and fowls survive the harshest weathers with only their feather coverings.
The duvet itself cannot be washed because the filling would be ruined, most especially in the case of real down filling. This is why duvet covers are so useful. They serve as a giant pillow case over the duvet. Buttons, zippers or ties at the top of the duvet keep the cover secured until you need to remove it. The covers can be laundered with the sheets and pillow cases in a washer at home, for your convenience.
For most people, making their beds can be a bit difficult. They have to put bed sheets, blankets, comforter, and other kinds of bedding. But some people, especially in European countries, use a duvet. This makes it easy for them to change their bedding. If you use a duvet, you can use it by itself, without using other kinds of bedding covers like blankets and sheets.
