Our stretch knit duvet covers were created with the help of pest control and bed bug exterminators. They are designed to stop allergens from dust mites as well as bed bugs.
Made from a "Satin Soft" 100% polyester fabric that is laminated to a urethane membrane. The weave of the fabric makes this cover feel very smooth and cool to the touch. Another benefit of the urethane membrane is these duvet covers are water-proof.

Great quality cover, however there are zero ties inside or outside the cover.

I had to sew in 8 sets of ties inside and outside this cover to make it work. Therefore, I wouldn't buy this again or recommend this unless you're willing to put in the sewing work. view less
I bought this to stop allergens. I can't say I really like it for other reasons.
Pro: Peace of mind because it has a waterproof layer, means almost nothing goes thro... view moreugh it.
Cons: Waterproof layer means it comes out of the washing machine sopping wet, even after turning it inside out and spinning it again. Takes more than an hour in the dryer, even with a dry bath towel added to help it dry faster. No tie tabs on the inside of the cover, and because of the slippery waterproof layer inside, the duvet floats around almost instantly. The waterproof layer means less air goes through it, so I toss and turn from overheating. Duvet off, duvet on, even though I'm a cold sleeper. This doesn't happen with a tight weave all-cotton protector. My husband complained about a bleach smell from the cover. It does smell quite strongly like new plastic and bleach, even after I washed it (without any bleach).
Overall, more cons than pros. The waterproof layer causes a lot more hassle. It's bad enough having to wash waterproof mattress covers, but add these as well, and your dryer will be running all day. I'm reluctant to add chemicals to kill dust mites in the wash, so using a dryer is a must for me. I don't think I'll be using these covers often. I'll go back to my all-cotton protectors. I can't return these now that they've been washed and used, so lesson learned. No more waterproof duvet covers. view less
