Big Grin Hey! Let's talk about bed linens!

Or not.


But at least tell me the difference between a duvet and a comforter cover.

A duvet is just a thick inner layer of bedding that is usually inserted into a duvet cover. I don't know what a comforter cover is. Probably something similar. The word "duvet" doesn't seem to be used as much in North America as it is in the rest of the world. I once asked a Wal-Mart attendant if they had any duvet covers and she looked at me as though I was crazy.

my comforter has a cover (it's got reindeer and snowflakes on it. i've had it since longer than i can remember. it's awesome, flannel, really warm), and yet...still a comforter. none of this duvet stuff, which i'm assuming isn't pronounced "doo-vet," but "doo-vay?"

bed linens =

Don't know a thing about them, except that I'd rather be with them than without them.

I think.

...right?

i think they're the same thing. you put the comforter in the "duvet" so you just have to wash the duvet instead of the comforter, you know what imean? so technically, it is a comforter cover ;] i guess....

mine matches my orange and green stripes walls! =)

That had nothing to do with the words you used... in my experience ALL Wal-Mart employees have that look when asked even the simplest question, i.e. "Where is the restroom?"
