Robinette Boulanger Duvet Covers April 08, 2018 21:34:59
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.
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.
The value of the comforter along with the fact that it is difficult to clean lead to the "invention" of the duvet cover. Similar to the concept of a pillowcase the duvet cover protected the down or silk comforter from body oils and all the other elements that might soil it.
From this practical and utilitarian beginning in a European peasant hut the duvet cover has developed to include being the center of a modern bedroom decor. It still protects but it has also become a fashion item that is easily changed and stored. The original comforters and covers were plain and drab but eventually the cover’s decorative possibilities were realized.
Color and design - Covers are available in different types of materials and colors. Their design and color should match the color of your pillows. If you are a picky customer then you would want covers that match the interior look of your bedroom. Finding appropriate designs can take a while. The good thing about covers for your duvets is that they provide a standard look for your bedding but there are also those with a modern style. The safest way to make choosing easy is to buy duvets and covers at the same time from the same store. Comforter and duvet cover sets can make buying easy.
Color - The color of the cover should not be lighter than the blanket underneath because often the darker blanket will show through. To avoid this choose a high quality thick material duvet cover that will not show what’s underneath or purchase a white down comforter or synthetic filled comforter to place inside. Also as clean and crisp as it may appear refrain from using a white duvet in a child’s room as the opportunity for staining is quite significant.
