Viollette Camus Duvet Covers March 11, 2018 20:42:03
A duvet, known in many countries as a quilt, is a thin yielding blanket with a soft filling inside. Its been there from bygone days serving the purpose of either a bed softener or a blanket in many parts of the world. Often there is confusion over the word duvet because in the United States Duvet is referred to as the quilt cover as opposed to the quilt itself. Duvet-covers are used just like a pillow cover, to protect the duvet and keep it clean.
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.
When you are looking at that comforter and seeing that terrible stain in the middle of it, we both know you are going is it that noticeable? Well worry no more, if you have a duvet cover on the comforter you will no longer have to clean that comforter, only the cover. For washing, these are the best things in the world. Throw into the washer on either warm or cold, use a nice mild detergent and let it do its thing. When it is done, the duvet cover can right in the dryer on low heat of course and you are done. It is that simple, you cannot say that much for your comforter, and you will be ecstatic at the results. No more time wasted when you take a full day to wash and dry your comforter, instead you are good to go in a couple of hours.
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 not only make your bed room look elegant but they also give the warmth that you need during your sleep. They usually make your room to have that new look that you have always dreamed of.
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.
