Viollette Camus Duvet Covers March 12, 2018 19:55:44
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.
Duvet Covers have become a popular choice for bedding around the world. Originally it was a type of bedding found in continental Europe or Scandinavia. The Duvet draws its name from the French word for down and that is the material that the quilt that a duvet covers is used with contains. The duvet (or quilt) can contain feathers, silk, wool, cotton, polyester batting or other artificial fibers. This duvet is then used with a duvet cover to keep it clean, or to coordinate it with the decor of a room. The duvet may be confused with a quilt, but the distinction is typically that a quilt is used on top of other bedding, a duvet is used as the sole bedcovering.
It comes in a variety of materials, and we are going to look at some of the better options for your home. Cotton, or cotton blends will be a durable way to keep your comforter safe. It is going to be a cool breathable material that will suit any room or person, plus is great for those warm summer nights. Polyester is going to a bit of a cheaper material to go with, if prices are going to be an issue. It has the added bonus of being anti-allergy material, but it does not breath too well. For those cold winter nights, flannel is the way to go with your duvet cover. This material will keep you toasty warm, but for those summer nights you will need to switch it up as you will be dying of heat exhaustion.
Choosing the Duvet-cover according to need. There are many types of duvet-covers in the market for different purposes and for every occasion. The cost varies with the fabric used as well as the designs. For example, in winters, a duvet cover made of silk, flannel or velvet would keep you warm whereas cotton or a lighter material duvet cover would be ideal for summers.
The duvet can be used by itself or fitted into a specially designed cover to prevent dirt and stains; this cover can be cleaned regularly. Cleaning a duvet may not be necessary unless it is dirtied or damaged beyond reuse, in which case its easier to replace the old with a new one, much like a mattress.
What are Duvet-covers? A Duvet cover is an important part of a bedding arrangement which protects the duvet from dirt, fading and wear and tear. It is easy to remove and to put on which also saves the cost of buying different duvets every time you want to change the design or the colour of your duvet. There is an array of different types of duvet covers to savour, some duvet covers even come with special double reversible designs which could change the colour or look just by turning the cover inside out.
