    What Is a Coverlet in Bedding?

    A coverlet is a lightweight bedspread that is sometimes quilted and sometimes woven. Coverlets are generally considered only as decoration and are placed over the general bedding on a bed. They can also be used as throws on a bed or a couch. Most bedding stores carry a variety of different weights and sizes of coverlets. Antique coverlets are also popular collector's items.

    History

    The word "coverlet" comes from two French words that mean "to cover" and "bed."

    Fun Fact

    Another variation of the word coverlet is "coverlid."

    Function

    Woven coverlets have raised designs. Woven coverlets are usually very lightweight, which means that their purpose is only for decoration and not warmth.
