This year I was tired of buying a new expensive duvet cover again. I don't know why, but we wear these out in no time! I decided to buy thick quality cotton (yes, lightbluegrey, and yes, I love this color for this purpose too), and decorated it partly at the top. I used non-saturated colored yarn, like olive, charcoal and warm grey.The result is quite subtile, but I like it. Unfortunately the price was as high as in a shop... I'll report how long it will last.
