Turns out there are duvet covers with little ties on the inside of the corners. And duvets that have little loops for the ties that help the duvet stay in place. I have gone 40 years struggling with a duvet that shifts inside the cover and bunches up in one corner. And it turns out there are these little loops and ties to keep it in place. I just spent the first night of my life without bunching issues, and it is intense.

And then people ask why there is no alternative to capitalism. Folks who discovered the loops inside duvet covers won’t want to do without them. And the only way anybody is going to create duvet loops is if they are eager to take away market share from the guy who sells loopless duvets. What else can possibly motivate one to put any thought, let alone effort, in the loops? The milk of human kindness towards strangers who suffer from bunched up duvets? That’s not very likely.

    This is the kind of thing I would have thought most people would invent for themselves. if they used a duvet. At home, at least, I just use a sheet and as many blankets as I need. Sewing a bit of Velcro at each corner of the duvet, and inside the cover seems pretty easy.


    • I’m not an Angel in the House. If I have a free half-hour, I read, watch TV or daydream. Sewing is just not something I’d do.

      I don’t feel very understood right now.
