Antique and online stores sell antique and heirloom blankets made of matelasse fabric. Cost varies from extremely affordable to very expensive price depending on the material used and where it came from. Individual collectors may have some items made of matelasse fabric, but who would want to sell his/her cherished collections? Some people collect antique coverlets or blankets, hanging them on rods as decorative artifacts.
It's worth noting that it takes special measures beyond a simple run through the washer to kill off dust mites. Dust mites have been shown to be more effectively killed off if certain essential oils are used in the washing process such as pine, eucalyptus, or peppermint oil. These can kill a large majority of the dust mites in the duvet and will also leave a refreshing scent. Unfortunately just killing dust mites is note quite enough. Most allergies to dust mites are to their waste products and their bodies (dead or live) and so it might be effective to shake out or even beat your duvet with a broom as it's suspended from a line. After this you will need to redistribute the filling material so that it is evenly placed. If you start out with a dust mite proof duvet cover you will not have to take such extreme cleaning measures of your duvet, you can simply focus your cleaning on the duvet cover on a regular basis and still avoid allergies related to dust mites in a dirty duvet.
A duvet is a type of bedding that is flat and filled with feathers, cotton, wool or synthetic fibers. It is used as a single covering, and unlike a comforter, is not meant to be used along with sheets and blankets. A duvet is generally placed inside a cover that is generally made of cotton, and this is what we call a duvet cover. A duvet cover protects the duvet from getting all soiled up, and is easier to clean than the duvet itself. It also serves aesthetic purposes.
Comforter: Not all the students going to college would require to buy a comforter, although the decision to buy one entirely depends on the weather condition of the place where you are going. You would need comforters if you are going to colder regions and places where it is mostly colder during the nights. If not, you would only require blankets. You will have to wash the comforters when you are in college, so get one that is washable. It would be better if it is also wrinkle-free.
