The Icelandic Eiderdown Duvet

Sustainably & traditionally handcrafted in the wild fjords of east Iceland.

The Pinnacle of Luxurious Comfort For Bedding

The Icelandic Eiderdown Duvet is handmade in Iceland’s most remote fjords using sustainably-sourced materials and centuries-old craftsmanship.

Filled with eiderdown – the most prized and insulating down on the planet – our duvets are wonderfully soft and surprisingly temperature-regulating for year-round comfort.

Every duvet is made-to-order to suit your exact needs and preferences for a lifetime of great sleep.

Eiderdown is Iceland's Most Prized Natural Resource

From Iceland’s first viking settlers to European royalty, eiderdown has been prized throughout history for its astounding physical properties. It’s pure, quill-free softness, trapping air in a tangle of interwoven threads to create insulating pockets of Arctic-beating warmth.

Only 4000kg of eiderdown is produced each year. It’s scarcer than gold, platinum and diamonds – combined and multiplied. 75% of the world’s eiderdown comes from our native Iceland.

Sustainably Sourced from Wild Eider Ducks

Protected by the Icelandic government since 1847, Icelandic eider ducks enjoy the best of both worlds – freedom and protection. In the fjords of Loðmundarfjörður, we provide the birds with safe sanctuary from predators, where they voluntarily nest during summer.

In return, they’re rewarded with a nestful of highly-prized eiderdown when the birds leave for the Arctic seas. No birds are harmed in the process. Eiderdown farming finds the perfect, symbiotic balance between bird and man.

Traditionally Handmade in Iceland's Fjords

It’s our passion to preserve our ecosystems and support our communities. In keeping with our Icelandic heritage, our duvets are produced with local materials and labour in Borgarfjörður, a town nestled in the majestic fjords of east Iceland.

The finest-quality German-made 475-thread cotton satin casings are filled with eiderdown into 24-60 individual baffle-box compartments for a luxuriously soft, even spread. Everything is done by hand, with no detail left untouched.

My new duvet is simply superb !! Not cheap but excellent value.

Cameron Low
4 June, 2021

After a lot of e-mailing back and forth with the owner of Icelandic Eiderdown (Ragna), I bought a single duvet (duvet), medium filled and it can't really be described in words.

Super light in weight but super warm, especially cozy warm.

No more heated synthetic states, just super!

I was skeptical at first because the purchase is quite pricey, but it is worth every euro.

According to Ragna Oskarsdottir, this duvet will last for years, time will tell.

I do know one thing for sure, my next duvet is 100% eider down.

I can recommend this to everyone, especially for people who suffer from too hot or overheated legs at night.

Thank you to all the people of Icelandic Eiderdown, your delicate work is in fact priceless, thank you for everything.

PS. Even 5 stars isn't enough to say how good this product is.

Greetings from Belgium,

Frequently Asked Questions

Eiderdown duvet vs comforter - what's the difference?

There is no real difference - except in our product sizing. Both are down-filled blankets with baffle-box stitching. Duvet is the term used in the United Kingdom, Commonwealth countries and elsewhere. Comforter is used in the United States and Canada.

Learn more.

Why is Icelandic Eiderdown expensive?

Eiderdown is a rare natural resource, and the world’s most prized out of all duvet fillings for its luxurious softness, lightness, and insulating properties. Our Icelandic down is also painstakingly collected and processed by hand. This combination of factors adds a premium price tag to our products.

Learn more.

Why is eiderdown better than other duvet fillings?

Eiderdown is unique in that it has no hard quills or feathers. It’s softer and springier than the likes of goose down, so it resists compression and can warm your bed for decades. It’s also thermo-regulating, meaning it adjusts to to keep you warmer or cooler depending on the ambient temperature.

Holding Eiderdown in your hand is magical; all you’ll feel is a glowing warmth – it weighs practically nothing. And when you stuff it into your fist and then release, it’ll spring up to 10 times its own volume.

Oh, and unlike other bird downs (goose or commercial duck down) which often involve cruel processes like live plucking, Eiderdown is 100% sustainable and animal-friendly – the birds voluntarily leave their down behind in their nests. No birds are harmed in the process!

Learn more.

Which fill amount should I choose?

We offer three different “fills” — light, medium and warm. This determines how much eiderdown we put inside.

If you tend to get cold at night, then you should choose the warm option, which has plenty of eiderdown to keep you warm at night.

However, if you tend to feel hot at night, then you may want to consider the light option. It has less eiderdown. If you are familiar with the TOG rating, then these are the TOG numbers for our duvets/comforters:

Light: 6-7 Tog
Medium: 9-10.5 Tog
Warm: 12-14 Tog

If you don’t know which one to choose, then we recommend the medium option. It should work fine because eiderdown tends to adapt to your temperature by expanding when it’s cold and compressing when it’s warm.

We can also add custom fill amounts if you want more or less eiderdown.

Do you sell sheets, covers, or casings?

It's a possibility in the near future. But right now, we only sell eiderdown duvets, comforters, and pillows. But feel free to contact us for help on choosing the right sheets, covers, or casings. Ragna would be happy to advise.

How many grams of eiderdown do your products contain?

This depends on two things - fill power and product dimension.

Click here for a full list of specifications for pillows.

Feel free to contact Ragna for more information.

How are your products constructed?

Everything is custom-made to order, meaning we hold no stock. Our duvets and comforters are hand-stitched using a baffle-box technique. Cotton casings are filled with eiderdown then evenly spread between baffle boxes, keeping the spread even.

Pillows are simpler, and don't require baffle-boxing.

How do I care for my eiderdown duvet/comforter/pillow?

Eiderdown bedding requires very little in terms of product care. But these are our guidelines:

Maintenance

Eiderdown loves fresh air. Every few days, shake the product to fluff it up. You can also air it outside every few months. This gets rid of dust and helps the eiderdown recover its fluffiness. Best done on fresh and low-humidity days.

Washing

Avoid washing unless absolutely necessary. We recommend professional cleaning. Gently machine wash at 40°C with a high-quality down soap. Air dry thoroughly leaving no dampness (damp can damage the eiderdown). We recommend contacting Icelandic Down before you plan on washing your bedding.

What if I don’t see my preferred size listed?

We can make duvets/comforters in any size, with any fill amount.

Just email Ragna at ragna@icelandicdown.com or via our contact page and tell us which size you want.

We will give you a quote based on the size and amount of eiderdown needed.

What guarantees do you offer?

All of our bedding is covered by a five-year warranty. If the product breaks due to a flaw, then you can send it back to us for free repair or replacement. You'll also receive a lifetime of customer support from Ragna herself.

Where do you ship to?

We offer tracked, first-class shipping to nearly any country in the globe. Our partners include DHL, TNT, FedEx or UPS, but we can use another carrier if you prefer.
