A duvet is typically a solid white comforter filled with down or a down alternative. A comforter is generally the same as a duvet but usually comes in colors and patterns and doesn't use a cover.
It's difficult to tell quality without seeing a duvet. Still, certain tell-tale signs are thread-count (at least 300), good outer shell material, good inner fill material. If you are looking at the bedding in person, feel the material and its loft and look to make sure the stitching is even and there are no loose threads.
When looking at duvet or comforter, there are two factors to consider: material and warmth level.
Down inserts provide a lofty sensation and superior heat regulation. For people looking for a luxurious feel, down is the premium choice. For others who have allergies or want something vegan-friendly, down-alternative inserts offer a similar feel by using microfiber clusters instead of down.
Choosing your warmth level comes down to personal preference. We offer multiple duvet warmth levels in down and down alternative options. Lightweight duvet, for warm sleepers and hot climates. Medium, a versatile, all-season option suitable for any climate. Heavyweight, for cold sleepers, winter months or a plush look.
