Duvets vs. Duvet Covers: What Are the Differences?

These days, most of us are trading in our bulky comforters for lightweight, cooling, easy-to-clean duvet sets. Still, shopping for the different parts of a duvet set can be a challenge. If you’re not familiar with this bedding option, you might struggle to find the right option for your taste and budget. At Pure Parima, we’re passionate about providing shoppers with the most comfortable, aesthetically pleasing duvet covers and premium duvet inserts. Keep reading to learn more about duvets vs duvet covers and discover what the differences are. 

What Is a Duvet?

Literally translated as a down comforter, a duvet is a soft, fluffy quilt that first gained prominence in Europe. Featuring a fabric bag made from materials such as cotton or silk, duvets are typically filled with down, wool, or a down alternative. The end result is a lightweight, cloud-like bedding option that keeps sleepers warm year-round without causing them to overheat. 

It’s worth noting that duvets aren’t always machine washable. In particular, washing down duvets too frequently can cause them to bunch and degrade. With that in mind, most customers opt to use their duvet in conjunction with a duvet cover.

What Is a Duvet Cover?

Because duvet inserts and duvet covers are not generally sold as a pair, you will likely need to shop for these items separately. Protective fabric bags that go over your duvet insert, duvet covers act like pillowcases for your blanket. Not only do they keep the duvet insert clean and dust free, but they also protect the skin while you sleep. And because duvet covers are removable and washable, you can toss them in the laundry with the rest of your sheets and pillowcases. 

Additionally, duvet covers enable buyers to redecorate their bedrooms with ease. Rather than purchasing a new comforter, you can simply swap your duvet cover to change your style. Choose a fresh color, style, or weave and give your space a brand-new look.

It’s worth noting that some customers opt not to use a flat sheet along with their duvet. That’s because the duvet cover protects your duvet from your skin’s oils. However, we recommend using both a flat sheet and a cover. After all, on nights when the temperature rises, you might want to push the duvet to the bottom of the bed and just use the flat sheet.
