A duvet is essentially a fluffy and bulky bag that is intended to replace all other underlying blankets with one top layer. Thus, it's possible to dispense with additional layers of bedding such as sheets, quilts, bed covers, and blankets. Duvets are always sold with removable and elaborate covers that come with matching pillow covers as well. A duvet cover helps keep the inner layer clean for longer.
There is some confusion over whether a comforter is a duvet, or whether a duvet is a comforter, but this is not the case at all. Traditionally a comforter is purely decorative and it is laid across the bed over the sheets and blankets. At night when it comes to sleeping the comforter is folded down or even taken off the bed. A duvet is that item you use to actually make the bed and you sleep under it. You can put your comforter inside a duvet cover if you like and you want to keep it dust free or clean.
It's worth noting that it takes special measures beyond a simple run through the washer to kill off dust mites. Dust mites have been shown to be more effectively killed off if certain essential oils are used in the washing process such as pine, eucalyptus, or peppermint oil. These can kill a large majority of the dust mites in the duvet and will also leave a refreshing scent. Unfortunately just killing dust mites is note quite enough. Most allergies to dust mites are to their waste products and their bodies (dead or live) and so it might be effective to shake out or even beat your duvet with a broom as it's suspended from a line. After this you will need to redistribute the filling material so that it is evenly placed. If you start out with a dust mite proof duvet cover you will not have to take such extreme cleaning measures of your duvet, you can simply focus your cleaning on the duvet cover on a regular basis and still avoid allergies related to dust mites in a dirty duvet.
The exterior of the duvet can be of several different fabrics, but polyester, polyester/cotton blend, silk, pure cotton, and polypropylene are the most common. As with other bedclothing, natural fabrics tend to be the most comfortable and luxurious. Polyester/cotton blend strikes a good balance of comfort and durability.
