You may or may not remember my recent post about the awesome new duvet cover I recently made [and am still so excited about]?
Well, it’s like sleeping under a cloud. Which is amazing considering it’s the same duvet inner as always. Even D commented that it seems much warmer now than it did before. This is a testament to how pathetic, threadbare and thin our other duvet covers had gotten.
I shouldn’t be surprised. As a textile scientist, I know fully well that thickness = warmth. But the fabric I used for the duvet cover is not exceptionally thick. It’s just a nice, high quality, ordinary 100% cotton plain weave fabric. Regardless, that little bit of extra thickness has made a noticeable difference in the warmth of our duvet!
D actually joking suggested that I make another duvet cover so that we always have a nice one on the bed when this one is in the laundry!! For him to even joke about this really says something.
So what colour/print/pattern would you choose if you were to make your own duvet cover (I highly suggest browsing the nearly endless selection over at fabric.com)?
