but kid, I 'm personally conviced they have a werid ability to morph in the process of being stuffed into a cover. whichever way you start is wrong, even if you measure it with a tape measure. then you take it out, start again, and it's stillwrong.
Seriously,if you buy kingsized covers and duvets,they all seem square.
LM,yuo would be converted if you slept in my lovely brass bed in our spare room,the breeze blowing in from the hills on the horizon,cocooned in my pristine ironed top notch White Company bed clothes......
MrsBubsDeVere, I use old fashioned sheets (flat ones, not fitted) blankets and bedspreads. Even eiderdowns if it gets really cold at night. I don't like duvets - they are either too hot or too cold in my opinion, and definitely not heavy enough!
Good for you LM. I didn't know anyone still used traditional bed clothes.
I remember when our family bought duvets in the seventies and we all called them our 'continental quilts'. We were so thrilled with them.
I think you're right about temperature control though. I have a summer quilt and a winter quilt.
I needed you a few months back when this duvet questo first arose SM. I said then I couldn't understand when the invasion of the duvets occurred. Back in the 70's, hardly anyone had them and they were considered a bit kooky if they did, and now, I am the only person under 70 who uses old fashioned bedclothes (it seems).
Lonelymum, i know what you mean about duvets not being heavy enough.
I still have very fond memories of living in a very cold house when I was about 5 and we had fitted sheets and big heavy woollen blankets, and I wouldn't go to sleep unless they were tucked in and I could hardly move lol
I remember I got my first duvet when I was about 9 and daren't touch it lol and couldn't sleep right for ages.
