Change Your Duvet Covers With The Seasons
When the seasons change, so does the weather. Many people who live in climates where it gets cold in the winter choose to change their duvet
covers for the fall and winter. While it is an extra expense to have extra bedding, keeping both cotton and flannel duvet
covers on hand can actually save you money in the long run.
Both cotton and flannel are sturdy and affordable, but they each have different insulating properties. Cotton is usually used in the summer because it is cooler and more breathable than other bedding materials. Additionally cotton can be recycled and is often made from recycled materials. Flannel, which is made from cotton, is soft and warm, making it ideal for cold winter nights. Both fabrics have their advantages and can help you save on your energy costs depending on the season. In the summer, cotton can keep you cooler so you donít have to turn the air conditioning down at night. During the winter, flannel will help hold on to your body heat so that you can keep the thermostat at a lower temperature while staying comfortably warm.
Both cotton and flannel are machine washable and relatively easy to care for. Cotton may shrink a bit when you wash it, and it is prone to wrinkling. Flannel is better at resisting wrinkling and shrinking than cotton, so overall the care is a bit easier.

covers can help you stay comfortable all year round
