Growing out of Pillows and Blankets

white pillows and comforter
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.
Head on over to for more.

I fully agree with you on using organic products that are free from animal components (example- feathers, etc.). The writing here is about a duvet cover and not about duvet content. The duvet covers are made of 100% organic cotton completely free of any animal content. The duvets its self is something else and needs to be worked on. Personally I avoid down duvet and prefer organic cotton comforter. Hope this info helps. My best wishes for your pursuit.

I choose to life my life as ‘organic as possible’, mostly in regards to animal welfare. As animal lover I cannot ignore how the duvet quite often is produced. Often picked on very alive chickens. The reason is a chicken re-produces their feathers x number of times during their lifecycle, and people making $ on selling feathers see it as a good business to get as many feathers out of a chicken as possible before the chicken is slaughtered. It is a painfull affair to get ‘your hair’ ripped of your skin. Try yourself if in doubt. For this reason only, I am looking for organic duvet. A factory or productution selling quilts stuffed with feathers produced with animal friendly approach, that is, feathers picked from dead chickens that have lived organic life. Does such production exist? Can you guide me further ? Sincerely Sanja
