Coverlets or Blanket Cover are used as a decorative cover over your bed.
Comforters are filled with layers of material including, polyester batting, down, wool or silk. The thickness or loft of the filling determines the weight and level of insulation.

Percale or Plain weave
Percale fabrics can be identified using thread count and intersection density as a measure. Cloths with more than 180 threads per inch in both warp and weft directions are classified as percale. This means that the fabric has more than thirty thousand intersections per square inch.
Pillow cases are designed to sleep on. They usually open at one end, contain a flange at the opening, and protect your pillow.

A sateen weave has one vertical thread woven for every four horizontal threads. The weaving process creates a herringbone pattern, slight sheen and soft feel. While they feel silkier and smoother to the touch, sateen weaves will tend to pull, wear and tear far more quickly and easier than a plain weave. Although the thread count is higher than a plain weave fabric, the intersections that hold the fabric tougher are 75% less, making it less durable.
Thread count is the amount of weft and warp threads that fit into a square inch (Australia 10 cm2) of fabric. By itself, thread count is not a good indicator of quality.
Colourful throws or blankets add colour, texture (or both) in addition to casual cosiness when laid on your bed.
A bed skirt or valance sits between your mattress and the box spring.
