Sleeping with an eiderdown quilt is a warm, light, cozy experience. Down holds a significant volume of air, thus making it very light with great insulation.
Eiderdown has small, unique, hook-like threads that lock it together, providing the insulation’s air pockets.
Icelandic eider farmers take
great pride in the manufacture of their eiderdown goods. Custom-made quilts are available. The size and amount of filling can be adjusted to suit everyone from infants to adults. Also made from Icelandic eiderdown are baby carriage warmers, designer clothing,
and souvenir samples of Iceland.
Approximately 3,000 kg of Icelandic eiderdown is produced every year.
The supply is dependent
on weather conditions each year. It takes 60-80 nests to produce one kilogram of down.
