Quilt Cover guide
We find that fabric choice is a more important determiner. So decide if you want structured fabrics like cottons, or organic soft fabrics like linen and bamboo. Also consider your sleeping temperature (and that of any partner in bed), as bamboo breaths better and is good for hot sleepers.
Quilt covers often come in a set, with 2 pillow cases.
Your bedroom décor is important, as the style of fabric can influence the ‘look’ of the room. If you’re into natural, organic styles – linen looks lovely with its natural creases and lines. If you like a more structured look, cotton sits well on a bed, and looks professional for open-houses for instance.
You may have heard about ‘thread count’ which refers to the strands of fabric per square inch in fabric. Its kind of a buzz word, and the idea is that the finer the threads, the higher the thread count, and the higher quality the fabric is. In our experience, there are other factors to consider aside from thread count. You may want a longer lasting, harder wearing fabric than one with a 500 thread count – so consider if high thread count is a relevant fabric choice for you.
What is the best quilt cover?
Everyone has different needs in bed linen, and we recommend thinking about your lifestyle needs, sleeping temperature and fabric preferences. Everyone will like and dislike different things in a quilt cover. Have a read of our tips and suggestions for best quilt cover brands.
What is the most comfortable Duvet cover material?
Soft Cottons and Bamboo fabrics tend to be the most comfortable fabrics or materials. Usually the higher the thread count, the softer the fabric in cottons, however this also comes with additional care requirements, so be aware that highest thread count is not necessarily suitable for your lifestyle. If you want a hard wearing, tumble dry fabric, a lower thread count is better for you. Bamboos as hard wearing, soft and fluffy, but do hold moisture and take longer to dry. Linens are beautiful fabrics, but tend to be stiffer, and not as soft.
Does a quilt need a cover?
Yes, quilts are not designed for regular laundering, they are designed as an inner filler for a cover. Covers for quilts need to be washed regularly. Quilts can be dry cleaned (and some machine washed) every 6 months, if they have a cover on them.
Is a quilt cover the same as a duvet cover?
In Australia the term Duvet, Doona and Quilt are used interchangeably, so yes a quilt cover is the same as a duvet cover.
Quilt Cover choices are also best considered with sheet set choices, so that your quilt cover and sheets complement each other. You may want matching, or contrasting colours or patterns. You may even want to mix up your flat sheet and fitted sheet – having different colours and styles across duvet, flat and fitted sheets.
