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.
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.
The first thing that you need to know about when you are looking for a duvet cover for your bed is the size. The sizes of duvets are really all over the board. You want to first start by measuring your comforter for width and height. If you have a fluffy comforter then you need to account for the depth realizing that they will takes some extra inches for your duvet. If you are looking for a really nice duvet, many retail shops should be able to help you get a custom size if you need it.
Luxury duvet covers are changeable and often reversible, with coordinating patterns and colors. With duvet cover bedding, one can change the look of the room without having to completely redecorate. Sometimes it is part of the bed ensemble along with sheet sets, shams, pillowcases and bedskirts.
Much like a pillow case on a pillow, this cover is the protective and often a decorative cover that slips over the down comforter or duvet. Duvets are usually not washable, so duvet comforter covers are useful for they can be laundered along with other bed linens, keeping the duvet or down comforter fresh and clean always.
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.
