Duvet

- Sep 05, 2019-

A duvet (UK/ˈdjuːveɪ/US/duːˈveɪ/; from French duvet [dyvɛ], meaning 'down') is a type of bedding consisting of a soft flat bag filled with downfeatherswoolsilk or a synthetic alternative, and typically protected with a removable cover, analogous to a pillow and pillow case. Sleepers often use a duvet without a top bed sheet, as the duvet cover can readily be removed and laundered as often as the bottom sheet. Duvets originated in rural Europe and were filled with the down feathers of ducks or geese. The best quality is taken from the eider duck, as its down is known for its effectiveness as a thermal insulator.
