For those cold winter nights flannel is the way to go with your duvet cover. This material will keep you toasty warm but for those summer nights you will need to switch it up as you will be dying of heat exhaustion.
The value of the comforter along with the fact that it is difficult to clean lead to the "invention" of the duvet cover. Similar to the concept of a pillowcase the duvet cover protected the down or silk comforter from body oils and all the other elements that might soil it.

From this practical and utilitarian beginning in a European peasant hut the duvet cover has developed to include being the center of a modern bedroom decor. It still protects but it has also become a fashion item that is easily changed and stored. The original comforters and covers were plain and drab but eventually the covers decorative possibilities were realized.
Also with the passage of time comforters began to be made of materials that are more easily cleaned leading to comforters that are decorative in themselves not necessarily requiring a duvet cover.
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.
