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.
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.
It is true that there are a limited number of bed sizes in the US - twin full queen etc. - and that the corresponding duvet insert or duvet cover sizes will fit their respective beds. However if you are not purchasing the duvet insert and cover as a set size can be an issue. It is not a matter of having either item fit the bed but the insert and cover need to fit each other. It is worth a little time up front to avoid bringing home a duvet cover that looks too big and sloppy because it is too big or one that causes your duvet insert to bunch-up because the cover is too small.
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.
Duvets became popular around the world in the 20th century as a convenient form of bed covering. In some parts of the world they are also known as quilts and are used as extra bedding or mattresses in households in addition to regular mattresses for kids and extra guests.
The duvet story begins a few centuries ago with down comforters in Europe and silk comforters in Asia. Both comforters required a significant amount of time to make which gave them value. Also both types are excellent insulators but neither one was happy being washed in the local stream nor are they happy in a modern washer.
