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.
Duvets for children: Planning bedding for small children requires a lot of effort. Because children keep growing buying duvets and duvet covers can be an expensive affair as sizes have to be changed and maintenance becomes a problem as they may have to be changed often if they are stained or damaged. Some children have independent tastes and may want duvets in sizes of their choice featuring designs and styles which catch their fancy from time to time. However they can be a good alternative to regular bedding where space is a constraint and where smaller children have to be placed in the master bedroom for easier supervision.
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.
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.
On line or in a store your shopping trip will be much more efficient if you determine the size comfort level and style of your new duvet cover before you start. With these decisions made in advance of the trip you can quickly weed out the duvet covers that do not satisfy one or more of your criteria and concentrate on those that could be the one you are looking for. They also help prevent the need to return the merchandise.
Material - Comforter covers can be made of either cotton or silk. These two materials are some of the most popular ones in the market. Soft woolen covers are good for the cold season.
