So for most of the year when one duvet insert is in use you have one bulky (but not as bulky as many other coverings) duvet inserts to store. Add to this all but one of your duvet covers - three in the closet along with one on the bed would give you four to alternate between. Each of the covers takes up as much space as two folded flat sheets.

A duvet is a soft bedding bag filled with bird feathers or down soft cotton silk wool or a synthetic substance like polyester or foam that is protected with an outer covering.

Duvets originated in northern rural Europe where winters required thermal insulation; duvets fulfilled that need especially for small children.
