Once you have the duvet insert measurements the measurements of your duvet cover can range from being the same size as the insert to being about two inches larger in both directions. For instance if your queen size insert measures 85" wide by 90" long your duvet cover should be from 85 to 87" wide by 90 to 92" long. Since both insert and cover are made of cloth and flexible these limits can be pushed a little but be sure the item being purchased can be returned before going too far outside of the determined range.
Duvet coverings are available in several sizes to fit your bedding needs. Don’t remove your duvet from its covering to keep it clean. Shake the duvet coverings every morning to distribute the fillings inside evenly. Look for the washing instructions of your duvet on the tag. Follow them to prevent damaging your lovely duvet.
The solution is to measure your duvet insert before you shop. The root problem is that manufacturers have not made either down comforters or duvet covers to standard measurable sizes. If you are buying a duvet cover for use over another kind of comforter quilt or blanket the need to measure your insert is even more obvious. It is important to get help when measuring your duvet insert because two people can pull the insert tight and make sure the end of the measuring tape is even with the edge of the insert.
The more expensive types of duvet inserts down and silk comforters are excellent insulators making the combination of insert and cover very thin and light weight for the amount of insulation and warmth they provide. Other types of inserts that are now available though not equal to down and silk comforters still provide very good bed cover qualities.
Fabri- Cotton is widely used in the making of double duvet covers. It’s durable washable and most of all comfortable! Of course there are many other materials that are utilized such as silk flannel micro fiber and sateen to name a few. While fabric is a matter of personal taste as well as budget and bedding needs keep in mind that the higher the thread count the better the overall durability quality and longevity you’ll receive from your purchase.
Thread count and skin: As we’ve mentioned already if you have sensitive skin the thread count can help a lot. But there’s another factor that you should consider. The composition of the duvet will also depend on the yarn. The finer the yarn the smoother the feel but they can be more expensive as well. The finer the yarn the more beautiful and colorful the design can be made to look; perfect for high end bedrooms.
