Duvets are flat bags that are typically stuffed with down type of feathers, wool, and or other natural stuffing materials. These bags are covered by so-called duvet covers making them ideal for beddings. Â Some people refer to duvets or duvet covers as comforters. Â The main difference is that comforters are mainly padded sheets that are soft to touch and feel. Â The padding in comforters may also be made of feathers, wool, or foam. Â Duvets meanwhile resemble flat bags that are stuffed with soft material like down feathers. Â The “duvet bag” is then covered with another piece of cloth which is called the duvet cover. Â Duvet covers are likened as pillow cases to the actual pillows or duvets.
Many people have duvets instead of comforters. Â Duvets cannot be washed and need to be covered for protection. Â The covering is aptly called as the duvet cover and this may be made of different types of fabric depending on preference. Â Duvet covers are also washable to keep duvets always smelling fresh and clean. Â Most common duvet covers are made with cotton, silk, and/or rayon among many others. Â Similar to bed sheets and pillowcases, duvet covers also come in different colors and patterns. Â Some are even made as reversible covers with one side having one color and the other side with a different color or pattern.
Some people prefer having duvets to avoid the complicated scenario of having too many sheets, blankets, pillows, and comforters in a single bed. Â For people who want to have a single piece of sheet or material for warmth, duvets with their covers are great choices. Â The only problem with duvets is that putting the covers on maybe quite a difficult task especially for big queen or king-size beds. The bigger the bed, the bigger duvet will be used and this simply means having to put the duvet cover on with quite an effort.
