Natalie Lemoine Duvet Covers March 29, 2018 20:02:25
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.
When compared to the same quality in other types of bedding the equivalent number of decor changes is less expensive when duvet inserts and covers are used. Duvet covers are made for use without a top sheet. Therefore they save the cost of top sheets and bed making becomes faster and easier. When you purchase a high quality down or silk comforter to use as your duvet insert the product will last for many years and each of those years can realize a utility savings associated with a lower thermostat setting. Duvet covers can be used to give new life to your old decorative comforters blankets and quilts.
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.
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.
The duvet can be used by itself or fitted into a specially designed cover to prevent dirt and stains; this cover can be cleaned regularly. Cleaning a duvet may not be necessary unless it is dirtied or damaged beyond reuse in which case it’s easier to replace the old with a new one much like a mattress.
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.
