Natalie Lemoine Duvet Covers April 09, 2018 22:11:01
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.
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.
Duvet covers have been around for a long time but most Americans were not aware of them until relatively recently. Through the twentieth century their general acceptance and popularity has gone from obscure to a level where even many husbands know what they are. The development of the duvet will provide a little background to the advantages that duvet covers will bring to your decorating arsenal.
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.
Duvet inserts and covers present less of a storage problem than other types of bed covers. In general two inserts are adequate for any bed. One for the colder months and one for the warmer months with an empty duvet cover (no insert) being used during the hottest months. So for most of the year when one duvet insert is in use you have one bulky (but not as bulky as many other coverings) duvet inserts to store. Add to this all but one of your duvet covers - three in the closet along with one on the bed would give you four to alternate between. Each of the covers takes up as much space as two folded flat sheets. This compares favorably with the storage space required for a total of four changes with other types of bed covers such as three bedspreads quilts or decorative comforters.
