Cotton Duvets

Duvets are the most heavenly during a winter’s night. They keep you a warm and allow you to forget all the snow-roofed drive ways and frozen fill up pipes. Duvets are like icing on a cake. They are the perfect covering to a comfortable mattress and bed. Duvets are really variants of comforters, but have the specified name due to the fact that they are filled with down, instead of additional materials. The word “duvet” does in fact mean down in French, hence the name duvets. But, today’s duvet manufacturers do not limit the filling of duvets to down or feathers. They use additional materials such as cotton to fill up the duvets for many reasons.


A common reason for the popularity of cotton duvets is to reduce the animal cruelty. Since down is mostly taken off birds, especially ducks, the birds are often killed in masses for poultry and their down is used for mainly bedding products. Cotton duvets do not demand the mass killing of the birds since the cotton plant can be cultivated and then cotton extracted without harming a income business. Additionally, cotton duvets are as equally soft as duvets filled with down.

Cotton duvets are filled with treated cotton so that the duvets are non-allergenic. This ensures people with sensitive skin peaceful sleep, without having to worry about allergic reactions to the cotton duvets. Cotton duvets may possibly either be completely cotton, which means they will have a cotton filling roofed by pure cotton cloth, or they may possibly have cotton fillings with a covering of a different notes. One such notes is silk.  Cotton duvets with silk covers are much more comfortable and they give a richer appearance to a bed. For this reason, they are used mainly in high class hotels.

An vital feature of cotton duvets is that they are light. When a duvet is heavy, it can weigh you down at night, making you feel extremely uncomfortable. It is also possible that a heavy duvet can decrease the radiation of heat, therefore causing you to sweat. Hence it is essential that the duvets are made out of light pure cotton. Improperly processed cotton can also contribute to heavy duvets as they clump together and become heavy.

When it comes to cleaning duvets, it can be a real chore if the duvets have to be washed by hand. Therefore, machine washable duvets are the best scale since they allow simple cleaning. When washing duvets it is vital not to use harsh chemicals as that can hurt the integrity of the cotton filling, varying the feel of the cotton duvet. The drying should also be done slowly, preferably on a clothes line. But, if a drier is used, a hot setting should not be used.
