Egyptian cotton bedding is considered an exclusive, comfortable bedding to sleep on. This type of bedding is made from high quality cotton that go as high as 1500 threads of Egyptian cotton per square inch. This is called thread count and basically the higher the thread count, the more comfortable the sheets are. Thread count counts the number of threads in one square inch of fabric.
A quilted bedspread has three different layers of fiber. The top of the quilt is made with cloth, then there is a layer of batting which is either made from materials such as cotton or wool or combination of fibers and the bottom is woven cloth. A quilt is unique from other types of bedding in that it is put together with various pieces of cloth. The term quilting refers to the method of piecing the pieces of cloth together, usually by stitching. Some quilts may just have a layer of fabric stitched together with a backing of micro fleece so there are two layers instead of three.
Duvet covers is a kind of bedding that is also called a continental quilt. It is somewhat similar to a comforter.
