THANK YOU! So, I'm not crazy. Is it just a regional thing, I wonder? I think what I'm looking for is a duvet cover. Her comforter was new, but she had a nasty nosebleed and I used oxyclean to get it out, but it bleached out the comforter. I just wanted a cover to go over it.

The duvet is the European name for a comforter. A duvet is usually filled with goose feathers or duck feathers and down. A comforter can have either natural or synthetic material while a duvet is usually filled with natural, the best being with eider down, and is better at keeping you warm since the air flows through the feathers whereas a synthetic comforter is not as good as it blocks the air flow. Duvets, the best ones are very expensive, but worth it.
