Duvet covers, the bedspreads, and comforters are the three common bed textile clothing for the autumn and winter. The choice for one of these three textiles will depend on personal tastes, although in recent years the duvet covers have gained many fans.
What are duvet covers?
The duvet cover is a relatively new piece of bed that has gradually gained ground in more classic garments such as blankets or duvets. It is something as simple as a cover in which a Nordic filling is inserted, usually down. A material that has the advantage of being very hot and light.
The duvet cover is the fashion that is prevailing in every room and as a follower of fashion you will not want to be left behind, since displaying a cover in the room is identical with good taste because these designs are modern and unique.
What should you know?
Duvet is a cloth made up of two layers of fabric that are joined by the sides and the top. The lower side, you must always place it at the foot of the bed is open to introduce and hold a padded filling that provides heat inside.
When choosing your duvet cover there are fundamentally three parameters that you must take into account: composition, closure form, and bed size.
What is the composition of the duvet cover?
There are three basic compositions for duvet covers-
- 100% cotton duvet cover: natural fiber, very soft, and long-lasting touch.
- 50% cotton and 50% polyester duvet cover: soft and long-lasting touch, easy to iron.
- 100% polyester duvet cover: soft and long-lasting touch, does not require iron.
What goes inside duvet cover?
The duvet is the quilted fabric that is inserted inside the duvet cover to provide warmth. When choosing the duvet, you must take into consideration the composition, weight, and size if the duvet.
Depending on the material with which the filling is made, we find the natural or synthetic nordic filling. Synthetics are cheaper than natural ones.
Made with feather or down from birds, usually from geese or ducks. It is the best thermal insulator, it absorbs moisture, prevents heat from dispersing, and maintains body temperature. As compensation, special care must be taken when cleaning it to avoid damaging the filling.
Made with synthetic fiber material. It retains the body heat emitted by our body within the duvet filling. There are two types of synthetic fillers:
Synthetic microfiber filling and Synthetic silicone hollow fiber filling.
What thickness of filling to choose?
The gram is the thickness of the filling. Therefore, the more weight the filler has, the more heat it will provide. When choosing the weight of the duvet filling, you must consider the temperature of the room, as well as your body temperature. For you to have a reference, the recommendation of Burrito Blanco is as follows –
100 grs /m2 filling: indicated for spring or winter in rooms with night heating.
