Duvets need covers to keep them from getting dirty when people sleep on them. Duvet covers are easy to take care of and come in colors and designs that compliment the color scheme of any room.
Like comforters and quilts, duvets are bought according to the size of the bed they will be used on. Some duvets are reversible, giving you designing options each time you wash and freshen up your sheets. You can change the look of a whole room simply by turning your duvet cover inside-out! 100 percent cotton duvet covers are known to be the softest when compared to rayon or microfiber, plus being completely natural makes it hypoallergenic.
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.
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 warmth that these feathers bring to your body is the ultimate experience without using thermal devices, which is an additional expense on your part. You can still buy duvet with feathers instead of other contents.
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.
