The basic bedding setup is pretty straightforward: a pillow to support your head, a blanket to keep you warm, and some sheets to sleep on; often sold in an all-in-one package. However, this equation doesn't account for all the details worth factoring into where you spend a third of your life: quality of fabric, allergies, cooling/heating properties, sourcing of the material, etc.
If you’re looking to elevate your sleep game, it’s time to graduate into the exciting world of duvets covers and comforters. First, we need to clear up some confusion on what these terms actually mean.
Similar to a sleeping bag, a duvet is a soft, flat bag usually filled with down, feathers, wool, or some combination of those materials, typically paired with a removable cover. A duvet cover is a protective sleeve that acts like a giant pillowcase to a duvet or comforter, letting you change up your decor style. Duvets are equal to a bed in size.
A comforter is a fluffy, quilted blanket usually filled with synthetic fiber. Comforters run a bit larger and thicker than duvets, draping over the sides of the bed. A comforter is more of a standalone option because it can be washed regularly and doesn't require a cover. Both are usually plain white.
Of course, duvet and comforter are often used interchangeably, especially in the United States. This gets more confusing when people call a duvet cover just "duvet" for short.
At MyOrganicSleep, we keep it simple by selling comforters and duvet covers. Although comforters can be washed regularly, we recommend pairing them with a duvet cover for protection and to accommodate changing decor preferences. Some of our comforters are available in light weight options for a more duvet-like level of insulation. If you have a non-organic duvet or comforter, it’s best to have your skin brush up against one of our 100% Organic Cotton duvet covers, available in a variety of elegant colors and patterns.
It's time to inject some freshness into your sleep ritual. Our beds are where we start and end our days, where a third of our lives are spent. Hold your bed in high regard and you will wake up healthy, rested, and ready for what the next day brings.
