Duvet cover size - Comforters come in different sizes. The size of the cover you buy has to match the size of your duvet; otherwise the cover will just be completely useless. Take the necessary measurements of your duvet and then find a cover that matches these measurements. Note that this does not mean that you have to buy a cover with the same measurements because it will not fit. Buy one that is slightly bigger perhaps a few inches bigger so that the cover will fit the comforter.
Once you have the duvet insert measurements the measurements of your duvet cover can range from being the same size as the insert to being about two inches larger in both directions. For instance if your queen size insert measures 85" wide by 90" long your duvet cover should be from 85 to 87" wide by 90 to 92" long. Since both insert and cover are made of cloth and flexible these limits can be pushed a little but be sure the item being purchased can be returned before going too far outside of the determined range.
For the person who likes to decorate and make dynamic change these covers are an exciting tool. If you have three or four covers you can change covers and the room’s appearance every few months. If you use decorative pillows you can enhance the bedroom’s appearance even more. Choose your cover and pillow colors so that the pillows can be used with more than one duvet.
Duvet coverings are available in several sizes to fit your bedding needs. Don’t remove your duvet from its covering to keep it clean. Shake the duvet coverings every morning to distribute the fillings inside evenly. Look for the washing instructions of your duvet on the tag. Follow them to prevent damaging your lovely duvet.
Fabri- Cotton is widely used in the making of double duvet covers. It’s durable washable and most of all comfortable! Of course there are many other materials that are utilized such as silk flannel micro fiber and sateen to name a few. While fabric is a matter of personal taste as well as budget and bedding needs keep in mind that the higher the thread count the better the overall durability quality and longevity you’ll receive from your purchase.
Cotton - In general cotton is a good fabric choice for bedding because its flexibility softness and breatheability all add to its comfort level. The quality of the cotton and the manner in which it is weaved effect its softness and feel. Quality is mainly based on the length of the cotton fibers (staples) attached to the cotton seeds. The weave produces different thread arrangements and it also establishes the thread count which is the total number of threads when counted along the top and one side of a square inch of material. The thread count of good quality sheets starts around 180 while even better quality sheets continue up the range to thread counts of 400 or 500. Thread counts above the 400 to 500 range are available but many people question their increased value.
