What Is a Duvet and a Duvet Cover?
Duvets, also known as Duvet Inserts, are pillowy, fluffy blankets that are quilted and then filled with down, feathers, or some type of synthetic material. The duvet is an insert that is protected by an interchangeable cover known as a duvet cover. A duvet consists of two parts: The shell and the filler. Inside a duvet, you will typically find wool, feathers, down, cotton, polyester, silk, or microfiber.
Duvets are protected by an interchangeable cover known as a duvet cover. Duvet covers keep the duvet inserts clean and prevent rips, stains, and general wear. The cover usually has some type of closure system such as a zipper, buttons, or ties. On high-quality duvet covers, each corner will contain a tie that will help keep the duvet insert in place. The duvet covers are easily removable for washing or changing styles.
There are both pros and cons to using duvets and duvet covers.
- Easily change style
- Warm & Lightweight
- Can easily remove the cover to wash
- Long-lasting material
