Tiffney Marechal Duvet Covers April 08, 2018 21:35:02
A soft and comfortable duvet can be expensive and hence a duvet cover is necessary for protection like a pillow case to a pillow. It can be slipped over a duvet and closed completely. Duvet covers are easy to wash and clean; the added advantage is that they can alter the decor of a bedroom or guest room easily or afford change of style or color to bedding units depending upon the season.
Also with the passage of time comforters began to be made of materials that are more easily cleaned leading to comforters that are decorative in themselves not necessarily requiring a duvet cover.
The solution is to measure your duvet insert before you shop. The root problem is that manufacturers have not made either down comforters or duvet covers to standard measurable sizes. If you are buying a duvet cover for use over another kind of comforter quilt or blanket the need to measure your insert is even more obvious. It is important to get help when measuring your duvet insert because two people can pull the insert tight and make sure the end of the measuring tape is even with the edge of the insert.
If you have sensitive skins choose the duvet with a finer finish. The thread count is especially important. It can make the difference between comfort and discomfort. A thread count of 300 is the comfortable enough but beyond that little else matters. It’s similar to applying lotion on your skin. One application is enough. If you add a second or third application you’re wasting the lotion.
Thread count and skin: As we’ve mentioned already if you have sensitive skin the thread count can help a lot. But there’s another factor that you should consider. The composition of the duvet will also depend on the yarn. The finer the yarn the smoother the feel but they can be more expensive as well. The finer the yarn the more beautiful and colorful the design can be made to look; perfect for high end bedrooms.
Duvet covers have been around for a long time but most Americans were not aware of them until relatively recently. Through the twentieth century their general acceptance and popularity has gone from obscure to a level where even many husbands know what they are. The development of the duvet will provide a little background to the advantages that duvet covers will bring to your decorating arsenal.
