What Is a Duvet Insert?

What Is a Duvet Insert?

A duvet is a popular type of bedding that usually comes with a duvet insert and a duvet cover. A duvet insert is primarily a plush bag that is filled with either down, feathers, cotton, or synthetic alternative filling. Also included is a duvet cover or an encasement that protects the duvet insert from spills or dirt.

Duvet inserts and comforters are often confused as they are both single pieces of bedding. Comforters are typically filled with down or down alternative fill, which is then stitched or quilted to hold the fill together and distribute it evenly. While both duvet inserts and comforters are similar in terms of use, comforters may be used without a duvet cover. Duvet inserts on the other hand are usually white and nondecorative, so a duvet cover is essential when using them.

Duvet inserts are encased with soft and insulating material, serving as a warm layer of comfort that you can sink into. Featuring a lofty construction, natural duvet inserts or down duvet inserts are highly breathable and exceptionally light to snuggle with. Duvets filled with down originated from Europe. Nowadays, duvets with down alternative fill such as synthetic fill are also available. Let’s understand the types of fill in detail.

Types of Duvet Inserts

When choosing a duvet insert, its filling plays an important role. It influences the overall level of breathability, warmth, weight, and durability of the insert. The most common types of duvet inserts are:

  • Down Duvet Insert
  • Feather Duvet Insert
  • Down Alternative Duvet Insert

Down Duvet Insert

Down is extremely comfortable and soft, making it the perfect filling material for cozy bedding. The remarkable insulation properties of down, down duvet inserts, are a delight for hot sleepers or people living in colder climates. Down duvet inserts or comforters are the most popular natural fill option.

Shelled in premium fabric, Puredown’s down duvet inserts are responsibly sourced. These inserts are breathable, fluffy, and provide exceptional warmth. Due to their lofty construction, down duvet inserts are extremely lightweight and excellent regulators of temperature. Assuring prolonged warmth and comfort, Puredown duvet inserts bring the absolute best of nature to your bedroom. 

Feather Duvet Insert

Feather duvet inserts are made of the exterior quilled feathers of waterfowl. Pure feather fill duvet inserts are not as common as down-feather blend fill inserts. Due to the softness and exceptional insulating properties of down, down-feather blend duvet inserts are a popular choice among sleepers.

Puredown goes the extra mile and adds a touch of innovation to the process by carefully sorting the feathers to remove any solid feather quill, making feather fill comforters feel as soft as down. Offering down, and down-feather blend duvet inserts, we guarantee you will find your ideal duvet insert with us.

Down Alternative Duvet Insert

Down alternative refers to duvet inserts with synthetic fill. Premium-poly is the most common synthetic fill for duvet inserts and is also a hypoallergenic option. Down alternative duvet inserts offer similar warmth as down duvet inserts and are easy to maintain since they are machine washable.

Each type of fill offers a range of options to help you to create your ideal sleep environment. The best choice comes down to many factors, including your personal preferences and choices.  

Protecting Your Duvet Insert

The most common method of protecting a duvet insert is to use a duvet cover. A duvet cover works as a protective shell or encasing for the duvet insert. It shields the duvet from dust, spills, or stains. The cover has buttons or zippers to fix the duvet insert in place.

The cover also reduces the need to wash the duvet insert frequently. Like regular laundry, you can machine wash a duvet cover at home with a mild temperature and warm water for efficient cleaning.

Duvet covers are available in several styles, colors, and patterns to add style to your bedroom décor. 

Why Duvet Inserts Are the Ultimate Dreamy Escape

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is fill power?
    Fill power is an indication of the quality and overall fluffiness of down in bedding. Down duvets with higher fill power are loftier and will provide better insulation. People living in a cold climate might choose a duvet insert with high fill power.
  • How does a duvet cover simplify making the bed?
    A duvet cover simplifies the process of changing the appearance of your bedding. Duvet covers are available in a variety of designs, patterns, and colors to choose the one that goes with your bedroom décor. Duvets fit easily into the cover, like a pillow in a pillowcase. Also, you can use a duvet without the top bed sheet because the cover can be removed and machine washed. 
  • What is another term for a duvet insert?
    Both comforters and duvet inserts are interchangeable terms. 
  • What is the ideal fabric for duvet covers?
    Cotton is the go-to fabric for covers. It is because a cotton duvet cover is soft to the touch, durable, and breathable.
