A soft, thick duvet wrapped in a silky cover is sure to bring you a good sleep. These bedding pieces add
combine of luxury and comfort to provide you with a restful sleeping experience. In order to maintain
the quality of these bed linens, it is is important to care for them properly.

A duvet is much like a bed comforter however it offers higher quality fabric and filling. Duvets are
made with feather, polyfil, wool and silk filling. The outer layer of the duvet is typically made of a
white cotton fabric with a high thread count.

The cover on a duvet acts much like a pillow case does for a pillow. The duvet is slipped inside the
cover and fits snugly inside the fabric. The end of the cover is then closed with buttons, velcro or a
zipper. Duvet covers come in a variety of colors, patterns and fabrics.

In order to maintain the quality of a duvet and cover, they must be carefully maintained. When you
get out of bed in the morning, fluff up the duvet to maintain the thickness and distribution of the filler
inside. If your duvet has a cover on it, you should not need to clean the duvet very often.

It's best to wash your duvet about every six weeks. Remove your duvet from the duvet cover. Do not
take your duvet to the dry cleaners as the cleaning chemicals will damage it. Instead wash your duvet
in a large, commercial sized machine. After washing your duvet, put your it into the dryer on a gentle
setting. Do not fully dry your duvet in the dryer. Remove it while it is still a bit damp and shake it to
redistribute the filling. Hang your duvet on a large hanger and allow it about a day to dry completely.

Depending on the fabric of your duvet cover, you should be able to wash it in a machine. Read the
instructions provided on the cover tag. Follow the directions for washing and drying your duvet. When
the cleaning process is complete, place your duvet back inside the cover.
