These imports from Europe have become adapted bed mates by many American families. When these flat bed covers first arrived in the U.S. they were stuffed with feathers or down feathers from geese or ducks. Down feathers are the soft feathers under the top feathers nearest to the skin. Birds and fowls survive the harshest weathers with only their feather coverings.
Cleaning - Speaking of staining the great thing about your double duvet cover is the ease in which it can be cleaned. No more lugging that heavy comforter to the laundry mat for an industrial sized machine the duvet simply is removed from the comforter and (following manufacturer’s instructions) is usually easily machine washed right at home. When the bedding is being used in a child’s room try to stay away from beading fringing or other difficult to wash details because the odds are the label will read dry clean only which just might have you making expensive and time consuming weekly trips to your local dry cleaner.
The warmth that these feathers bring to your body is the ultimate experience without using thermal devices which is an additional expense on your part. You can still buy duvet with feathers instead of other contents.
The duvet can be used by itself or fitted into a specially designed cover to prevent dirt and stains; this cover can be cleaned regularly. Cleaning a duvet may not be necessary unless it is dirtied or damaged beyond reuse in which case it’s easier to replace the old with a new one much like a mattress.
Faux Suede - Faux Suede is a 100% polyester fabric that has the look and feel of suede. Silk - No one can deny that silk has the look and feel of silk but it also brings along the silk price tag.
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.
