If you are asthmatic or allergy-prone another option you could go for is silk duvet covers. Silk is a natural fibre and soothes the user into a blissful sleep. Though it could cost a little more than the regular cover it gives an incomparable lavish look to your duvet. It is a good investment considering the anti-allergen effect it gives while also serving all seasons by staying warm in the winters and cool in the summers.
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.
A duvet cover essentially is a pillow case for your comforter. They come in a variety of shapes and colors to fit any comforter that you own. Instead of having your comforter get dirty your cover will get the brunt of the spill which is going to be giving you peace of mind. Remember with the varieties that are available you will be able to find the perfect duvet cover for any room and for any personality.
The duvet story begins a few centuries ago with down comforters in Europe and silk comforters in Asia. Both comforters required a significant amount of time to make which gave them value. Also both types are excellent insulators but neither one was happy being washed in the local stream nor are they happy in a modern washer.
Special duvet covers to battle the dust-mites. Asthma sufferers or allergy prone sufferers have a hard time keeping the dust-mites in check. Dust-mites are microscopic arachnids which thrive on dust especially in the down fillings of pillows and quilts. They comprise of almost 80% of the dust around the house!
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.
