When you purchase a high quality down or silk comforter to use as your duvet insert. the product will last for many years. and each of those years can realize a utility savings associated with a lower thermostat setting. Duvet covers can be used to give new life to your old decorative comforters. blankets and quilts.
What is a Duvet Comforter Cover? Duvets originated in Europe. and were made from down feathers of the eider duck. which is known for its usefulness as an insulator and is called eider down. So what exactly is a duvet? A duvet is essentially a bag filled with feathers. that you use as a blanket. So. you may be wondering. what exactly is the difference between a duvet and a comforter? Well. a comforter is to be used in conjunction with other bedding. The traditional use for a comforter is you make your bed with a bottom sheet. a top sheet. one or more blankets. and then the comforter on top. A duvet however is usually used all by itself. When using a duvet. the common practice is that you do not use sheets or blankets. you use only a duvet.
Although duvet inserts and covers have been around for a long time. their popularity in the US has lagged behind their popularity in other countries until relatively recently. Their popularity in America is now growing as people realize their many advantages over other types of bedding. If you have not yet experienced these advantages for yourself. you are encouraged to try one soon.
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. One last step in reaching the duvet covers used today took place when the first homemaker became tired of her decorative comforter and realized that she could cover it with a duvet cover to produce a fresh new bedroom look. Blankets and quilts can also be used as duvet inserts. so whether one of these preceded the decorative comforter as a duvet insert is not really known.
