The Most Frequently Asked Questions about Cover Sets and Throws
What is a duvet cover?
This is a type of cover that is commonly referred to as a comforter. It is typically very thick and is used primarily during the cold winter months as the top cover on your bed. These covers are usually placed at the foot of the bed during the warmer months of the year. These duvet cover sets can be made from down feathers, silk, or wool, and oftentimes come with thermal ratings that identify how much insulation the cover will provide. These sets can come in a range of colors and can be matched to any bed size that you have, whether it's a twin bed or king bed.
How many pieces do these cover sets come with?
Some duvet cover sets come with a single piece consisting of only the cover. However, the majority of these sets come with three distinct pieces consisting of the cover and two pillowcases. The pillowcases are usually outfitted with the same matching design as the cover. These sets can come with as many as seven pieces. Seven-piece sets usually come with a single duvet, two shams, one fitted sheet, one flat sheet, and two pillowcases.
Which patterns do these sets come in?
The most common patterns available with these covers include solid and striped patterns with a wide range of different color options. Many of these covers feature ornate patterns that can lend a luxurious and elegant aesthetic to your bed. There is also a large number of flowered patterns that can adorn your covers. Some of the additional patterns include geometric and polka dot. Many of these covers also include pictorial patterns that highlight sports teams or landscapes, such as a sandy beach or snow-capped mountain. You can choose to match the pattern and design of your cover with the interior aesthetic of your home, or you can simply select the pattern that you visually prefer.
How do I clean a throw?
Most of these covers can be placed into the washing machine, so you won't need to manually clean them yourself. Make sure to read the care instructions for how to properly wash your cover - this tag should be situated somewhere along the edge of the cover. It's important that you follow these instructions to the letter to keep your covers in the best condition and to avoid issues such as materials becoming too inflated.
