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. Some covers have a 100 TC while others can have more than 1000 TC. If you want a really soft cover for your bedding, something that is very comfortable, you should choose a higher TC. The higher the TC, the softer the cover will be. If you want a good quality cover, a 300 TC is okay.
In the United States, many people say "duvet" when referring to a duvet cover; whereas, in Europe and in Canada, most people refer to a down comforter as a duvet. Duvets are like comforters, except that they have duvet covers which are replaceable and washable, much like large pillowcases.
The duvet story begins a few centuries ago with down comforters in Europe and silk comforters in Asia. Both comforters required a significant amount of time to make, which gave them value. Also, both types are excellent insulators, but neither one was happy being washed in the local stream nor are they happy in a modern washer.
Duvet covers are very popular these days and they are great for styling a bed. Essentially, a duvet cover is just a really big slip cover for your comforter. This allows you to change the style of your bed very easily, however they do serve and practical function as well.
If you are looking for a cover for your duvet or comforter than you may have already discovered that there are thousands of choices out there in department stores and online. There are a few important factors to consider when selecting a good cover for your duvet.
Silk duvets come in two kinds. The first is a duvet that has silk fibers on the inside, but it's really covered by cotton. These are soft and all, but not really as good as silk duvets with silk coverings. These types of duvets work really well because you get all the benefits of silk. They are hypoallergenic, they regulate your temperature really well, and they don't aggravate allergies or asthma.
