Is it "acceptable" to use a comforter dirctly on top of your sheets? Without a blanket in between?

Peggy - acceptable to whom? I would use whatever I like and whatever feels comfortable and is hygienic. Do you have a comforter cover for the comforter, or is it 'naked'? If the former, you don't even need sheets, but if the latter, a sheet will be good.

Veronika - duvets in the USA are not "bags of feathers" either, I've never even heard of such a thing, I don't know why the writer said that because a duvet styled the way he/she described would be impractical and uncomfortable. We can get 100% goose down with 800 fill weight, which is very light and fluffy but very warm in winter but cool enough for summer (our summers are much hotter than in Denmark/Norway/Sweden and most Americans have central air conditioning (except for people living in Washington state or Oregon), so warm bedding in the summer is a must. Our duvets are exactly the same as the type you use. And we also have good quality sheets for excellent prices - we have IKEA but we also have several other bed & bath stores with linens of every price and style.

I've been to and lived in Sweden and Denmark dozens of times, so I'm familiar with your bedding. It's very similar to what we have here except most people use a top sheet.
