Just like traditional comforters, duvets also come in different sizes-twin, queen, king, and California king. You have to select the right size for your duvet cover based on the size of the duvet. If you have a twin sized bedding, you do not want to choose a queen sized cover. It will be too big. One the other hand, choosing a small cover for a big duvet is also not good because the bedding will not fit into the cover, which means you just wasted your money and time.
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.
Also, with the passage of time comforters began to be made of materials that are more easily cleaned, leading to comforters that are decorative in themselves, not necessarily requiring a duvet cover.
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."
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.
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.
