zztp. Duvets. July 17th , 2018.
Although duvets are each commonly used in European countries. in the United States there still seems to become some confusion as to the difference between a comforter and a duvet and a duvet comforter cover. Many retailers. when promoting a duvet. will indicate that a duvet is to be used to cover a comforter. In essence this is not true. A duvet cover is used to cover a duvet. but some people will use a comforter in place of the duvet. hence the phrase duvet comforter cover.
Duvet inserts and covers present less of a storage problem than other types of bed covers. In general two inserts are adequate for any bed. One for the colder months and one for the warmer months. with an empty duvet cover (no insert) being used during the hottest months. So. for most of the year when one duvet insert is in use. you have one bulky (but not as bulky as many other coverings) duvet inserts to store. Add to this all but one of your duvet covers - three in the closet. along with one on the bed would give you four to alternate between. Each of the covers takes up as much space as two folded flat sheets. This compares favorably with the storage space required for a total of four changes with other types of bed covers. such as three bedspreads. quilts or decorative comforters.
To survive the diverse periods through the year. we wear special and particular material to make us feel relaxed and adjust to the environmental temperature variation. The same consideration applies to the duvet. A duvet should be lighter in the summer and warmer in the winter. Choosing the right warmth is subjective and depends on certain factors. In order to buy a duvet. you should be focused on the details of production. The option of casing for a duvet should be either the tick. twill weave. cambric or batiste satin weave.
So what about when you are using a duvet? Well. that is where duvet covers come in. Essentially. a duvet cover would take the place of a set of sheets. because the duvet cover can be taken off the and washed as you would a set of sheets. It certainly seems that this would simplify the bed making process. since you would be replacing your top sheet. blanket and comforter with a simple duvet. You need only throw the duvet over the bottom sheet and you are done. Or. if you go the old fashioned way. you would have a duvet on the bottom and a duvet on the top. kind of like a sleeping bag with no zippers.
The value of the comforter. along with the fact that it is difficult to clean. lead to the "invention" of the duvet cover. Similar to the concept of a pillowcase. the duvet cover protected the down or silk comforter from body oils and all the other elements that might soil it.
