Reasons to use a Duvet Cover

 We think it is safe to say that Down Comforters and Duvet Covers are the most popular top of the bed covers.

Here are some reasons why.

Duvet covers are likely the most popular top of the bed cover 

Down Comforters and Duvet Covers are wonderfully light and cozy... 

  • Down has an excellent warmth to weight ratio.
  • This arrangement does not constrict your legs in anyway. This combination is simply incredible to sleep under.
  • Making the bed with a Duvet cover and down comforter is quick and easy.
  • Duvet covers themselves are available in an endless array of colors and patterns. One can easily change the entire look of the bed by changing the Duvet cover.
  • Cotton Duvet covers are easy to launder.
  • If you’re in the market for a new Duvet cover, look for a light sheet weight fabric vs. a heavy textured fabric. In the below video, we explain why.


  • Using a Duvet cover over your Down Comforter is a good idea as it protects it from body oil & make-up and other items it may come in contact with.
    • Most Down Comforters are made from a white cotton fabric, some are ivory. Regardless, they can soil easily.
    • Duvet covers are much easier to clean than a Down Comforter.
