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.
You should also check the thread count of the cover. When you see the term 'thread count' or 'TC' in the product's label, this means the number of thread per square inch.

Hence quilts prove to be helpful. There are different types of duvet covers available with different designs and patterns. You also have double side or reversible designs. This will change the look of the bed.
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.
Natural fabrics such as cotton are usually better for pet owners who do not want to be constantly cleaning pet hair off the cover for your duvet. It would also help to get a cover that has a high thread count. Stay away from polyester and other artificial fabrics. If you do need to clean pet hair off of your duvet, run over it with a damp sponge and that should do the trick.
Is it a duvet or a comforter? The distinction between the two has been blurred since the down feathers have been changed to wool, cotton, silk, and other materials. The main distinction is that duvet covers lay alone on the bed without any other sheets placed on top of them. The duvet contains the feathers or the stuffing and
