This Ridiculously Soft, Wrinkle-Free Duvet Cover Is the Only One You’ll Ever Need to Buy
“Parachute is really one of the best bedding companies out there,” a statement that, after years of intense product testing, we stand by 100 percent. As one of our pro bedding testers, contributor Stella Totino knows the difference between a quality duvet cover and something that may only last a few months — and it’s all in the details. She put the Parachute Brushed Cotton Duvet Cover to the test for our list of The Best Duvet Covers, and because it was recently awarded the best cotton cover we’ve tried, we know it deserves a spotlight of its own.
Crafted from 100 percent cotton from Portugal, Parachute’s brushed cotton undergoes an intensive and specific process in order to yield such immediate softness and elegance. “This duvet cover is crazy soft, while still feeling crisp and clean. Somehow it wrinkles minimally and seems to self-smooth across my bed,” Stella says. Massaged with fine-tooth metal bristles after it’s woven, Parachute’s brushed cotton has slightly raised fibers that are then de-pilled to create an incredibly soft surface. Because the fibers have more texture at such a detailed level, brushed cotton is even more moisture-wicking and breathable than traditionally woven cotton fabrics. Hot sleepers, rejoice.
“My favorite feature: It has pockets in the corners where you can tie your duvet insert, so you never have to see a bulky tie through the fabric,” Stella says. We love Parachute’s consistent attention to the small things that make big differences. Bulky duvet corners (thanks to heavy ties) that protrude and ruin the look of a smoothly made bed are not only annoying to sleep under but change the look and feel of your space overall. If this seems like minutiae, consider this an example of how it truly is all in the details. Parachute’s Brushed Cotton Duvet Cover‘s “subtle, elegant seams make my bed feel luxurious,” Stella says. “I love it.”
