  1. Arnold

    I thought to give my partner something special, something that she would look at every evening and feel a bit more loved, a bit more special. I wanted to tell her that I want her to have the very best, and I think she is the very best. That was why I chose her all those years ago and that was why I chose Eiderdown for her. And the process was easy and friendly.

    Hi Ragna. I found Icelandic down by accident while searching for eiderdown products. I purchased a pillow from them. I was impressed with the fine quality and cleanliness of the product. I will buy from them in the near future. Thanks a lot.

    Ragna and her team make you part of the journey to collect eider down from start and past end of transaction. Any questions she’ll answer with pertinent information and guide you to make sure your purchase will be right for you. It’s been a great experience all round, which not least is around the eider down product – other reviews I’ve read here say it so well, it’s difficult to add, but if I could – there’s nothing else like it – its a considerable purchase but an investment in ethics and a practicality which will serve for many years and most probably save costs in the long term.

    The temperature regulating properties and physical comfort and relief offered by this down are really what one would term a health item – much like a “NASA” bed, but one made by nature and humble, beautiful creatures which are only too happy to share their warmth and protection in exchange for two months’ shelter and security-guarding. Last but most certainly not least the quality of workmanship is no less than the best one would expect from the region.

    Going back to what I said about there being nothing else like eider down? Try it.

    My fancy pillow! I like it!

    It kind of flattens down quite quickly but I feel pampered and spoiled with such a fancy pillow!

    Also I feel it helps with my sensitivities, although I still haven’t found a clothes soap that completely washes out of my pillowcases!

  5. Dr. James Busch

    I received my Icelandic Down Company Eiderdown pillow as a Christmas gift and it is absolutely wonderful! I have never had a better nights sleep. Pure comfort, softness, support and restfulness! And I understand the ordering process was uncomplicated and the company very friendly and efficient. I highly recommend this pillow to anyone seeking a totally new experience in sleep!

Product Description

Utterly soft, yet surprisingly springy and supportive, our 100% Icelandic Eiderdown pillows promise decades of blissful sleep. Eiderdown is one of the coziest, most luxurious natural materials on the planet, and was once prized by Europe’s kings and queens.

Our pillows are ethically hand-produced by our family in the fjords of east Iceland. When you purchase products from Icelandic Down, you’ll be in direct contact with our founder and owner, Ragna Oskarsdottir. She’ll help you customize your duvet, answer any questions, and help you throughout the process.

Soft, Springy & Form-Maintaining

Eiderdown is naturally springy and resilient. Our pillows are so soft because they don’t contain any quills or feathers, and mold to the shape of your head as you sleep. When you get up, it springs back into shape – and keeps its fluffy, voluminous form for years to come.

Sustainable & Animal-Friendly

Our Eiderdown is ethically harvested by hand from the abandoned nests of eider ducks in the wild fjords of east Iceland. The farmers provide the birds with sanctuary from Iceland’s natural predators. As a thank you, the birds leave their down behind after the nesting season.

All of our manufacturing processes are 100% natural – and we don’t use any nasty chemicals or pollutants.

100% Custom-Made

Every pillow is produced by hand. That means you can customize your fill weight, dimensions, and cover fabrics.

Government-certified: Each pillow comes with two government certificates that prove the authenticity of the eiderdown and the quality of the product.

Product Sizing & Customization

We can custom-make our pillows to match your unique preferences.

For the pillow cover, pick between 100% down proof sateen cotton or down proof premium silk. The cotton is lighter, but the silk is prettier, softer, and a bit more expensive.

Fill types

  • Soft: Perfect if you like to sleep on your stomach or if you simply prefer a very soft pillow.
  • Medium: If you sleep mostly on your back, then the medium fill will work best.
  • Firm: Side-sleepers will do best with the firm fill.

If you’re in doubt about which one to choose, we recommend the medium fill.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Eiderdown better than other pillow fillings?

Simply put, absolutely. 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 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 life 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!

Why is Icelandic Eiderdown expensive?

Eiderdown is a rare natural resource, and the world’s most prized out of all pillow 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.

Is Icelandic Eiderdown better than other eiderdown?

We certainly think so. Iceland is one of the cleanest countries in the world with fresh air and little pollution. The nesting area where our eiderdown is hand-picked is far away from any sort of human activity, so it’s as natural and peaceful as it gets.

Which fill amount should I choose?

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

If you prefer to sleep on your stomach, we recommend a soft fill. If you sleep on your back, a medium fill. If you’re a side sleeper, choose a firm fill.

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

How much eiderdown is in the pillow?

The amount of eiderdown depends on the pillow’s size and fill amount (soft, medium, firm). You can see the amount of eiderdown on this page.

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

We can make duvets and pillows in any size, with any fill amount. Just email us at [email protected] 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.
