.. a duvet & a comforter?

Aren't they basically the same thing... the "top" heavy blanket?

Also, can I put a duvet cover on a comforter (if they arent one in the same)? Or will I be breaking some unwritten rule of bedding?

A duvet is a cover you put over a down comforter. Like Mr.PassatMan says, it's like a big pillow case. It usually has large buttons to close the top. What's nice about them is that you can change them for a different look and they will fit into your washer unlike the down comforter. It's for protection and looks.

If you look at this stripped cover, it has a comforter inside.

Duvets are also excellent for summer sleeping bags, when you need to crash someplace but really don't want to use a hot nylon sleeping bag :thumbup:

Duvet in French means comforter, so in essence there is no real difference between a comforter and a duvet. The only thing that sets them apart is that some comforters are colored or have patterns on them. These type of comforters are to be used as an individual top of the bed.
Thats why they are called duvet covers. It's a fancy way of saying comforter cover. That's all they are.

Har har har... (lol)...
When I moved in to my apt, someone gave me a duvet cover as housewarming present. Since I didn't wtf a duvet was, I had no idea what it was supposed to be covering. Late last night, I was doing the laundry & it started to bug me so I did a google (didn't want to wake the GF up so I figured I'd ask you guys/gals) for duvets & got nothing but comforter stuff from the search. So I assumed it was a comforter.

So basically, its just a comforter cover, huh?

[Tyler Durden] Do you know what a duvet is? It's a blanket, that's all, just a blanket. Is this important, do we need to know what a duvet is? Is it important in the hunter/gatherer sense?[/Tyler Durden]
