Icelandic Eiderdown Duvet

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

Icelandic Eiderdown Comforter

A warm embrace of an eiderdown comforter. Made from the softest, most insulating and sustainable down on the planet.

Icelandic Eiderdown Pillow

Filled with eiderdown luxurious, quill-free down. Our pillows are wonderfully soft, yet surprisingly resilient.

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. 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.

Ragna has been extremely helpful throughout the process, and we are deeply grateful to her and her team, and particularly to the Avian members for supplying their magical down.

Paula and Jai | NOVEMBER 2021

We purchased our first duvet for our master bedroom a year ago and decided our guests should have the same lovely duvet and blissful sleep. There is nothing to compare and well worth the investment. The customer service is amazing, too. Bravo Ragna and team.

Karen Lowe | NOVEMBER 2021

We ordered a king size comforter and it's a touch of haven on earth. The down is incredibly light and cover fabric is soft and high quality.

Marta Unnarsdottir | JUNE 2021

The temperature regulating properties and physical comfort of eiderdown are really what one would term a health item... one made by nature and humble, beautiful creatures.

Tony | JUNE 2020

A stunning visit in a workshop in Borgarfjordur eystri, learning about a wonderful, sustainable product. A swift decision and now I´m happy owner of a super-duvet.

Oliver Rathschueler | OCTOBER, 2020

Sometimes I have to get up in the middle of the night to let the dogs out and it's the best feeling ever to get back under the deliciously warm blanket. It is pricey, but hopefully it will last a lifetime.

Kaisa | December 2021

When you factor in cost, the quality of the product and the magnitude of service. Purchasing eiderdown from Icelandic down is second to none.

Jaron Frost | DECEMBER, 2020

We wake up later and we don't notice if the duvet is making us hot or cold. It is just there, floating above us, doing its amazing "Goldilocks" temperature control.

Harvey Bowden | January 2020

To know I'm supporting a business that puts animal welfare at the forefront of everything means the world to me. I'm sleeping under a quilt where no birds are harmed and that gives me such a good feeling.

Samantha Bentley | July 2021

I have never received the kind of attention I received here. Prompt informative and sincere. These people are terribly proud of their product and of their heritage.

What Do Our Customers Love?

“The temperature regulating properties and physical comfort of eiderdown are really what one would term a health item… … 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. The quality of workmanship is also no less than the best one would expect from the region. Ragna and her team make you part of a journey. Any questions she’ll answer with insightful information and guides you to make sure your purchase will be just right for you.
Tony | JUNE 2020
My husband and I purchased an eiderdown duvet as a Christmas present for ourselves. It is the perfect gift as we value our sleep very highly. The duvet is incredibly luxurious - it is so fluffy and soft. It stays fluffy throughout the night and doesn’t form any clumps like regular feather duvets do. Sometimes I have to get up in the middle of the night to let the dogs out and it’s the best feeling ever to get back under the deliciously warm blanket. It is pricey, but hopefully it will last us a lifetime.
Kaisa | DECEMBER 2021
BUY THE BEST SHOES AND THE BEST BED THAT YOU CAN AFFORD. BECAUSE IF YOU ARE NOT IN ONE YOU ARE IN THE OTHER. So you should by an Eiderdown duvet. We did, from Ragna at Icelandic Down and we are very happy; impressed with the genuine caring service that can only be given by a small company, and sleeping better. How do we know? We wake up later and we don’t notice if the duvet is making us hot or cold. It is just there, floating above us, doing its amazing “Goldilocks” temperature control.
Harvey Bowden | JANUARY 2020
Icelandic Down custom-made the duvet of our dreams for us, in precisely the dimensions we wanted, and to precisely the weight that would keep us comfortable all year round. Ragna was a marvellous communicator throughout and, what is more important perhaps, utterly reliable, as well as being enormously helpful in every way. Slightly to our surprise and much to our relief, the cost of the duvet was actually very reasonable for an article of such quality, as a comparison to other possible suppliers quickly made clear.

When visiting the beautiful village "Borgarfjordur eystri" we found this interesting company "Icelandic Down" which manufactures and sells eiderdown duvets and pillows all over the world. What an experience seeing the birds swimming near the shoreline with their hatchlings and discovering these luxury products made with down collected from their nests at the same time. Well it was no question in my mind that I had found my wife's next gift. Now she is a happy owner of both an eiderdown duvet and a pillow. Actually she is so happy with it, she want's another set for our summerhouse!
Óskar | APRIL, 2022
A hut-wardens hint in a remote Icelandic fjord. A stunning visit in a workshop in Borgarfjordur eystri, learning about a wonderful, sustainable product. A swift decision and now I´m happy owner of a super-duvet. Perfectly manufactured, perfectly warm, simply perfect. As my fellow countryman Arnie always says: I´ll be back :).
Oliver Rathschueler | OCTOBER, 2020
Most reviews initially focus on the product which in this case speaks for itself.Let me comment on Ragna and her team . I have never received the kind of attention I received here . Prompt informative and sincere. These people are terribly proud of their product and of their heritage. Read a bit about all that goes into creating eider products and I think you will understand why they are pricey but well worth the investment.
James Peterson | DECEMBER, 2020
Once you’ve tried eiderdown, there’s no going back. I should know for I have tried. Furthermore once you experience excellent customer service from Ms. Ragna, you don’t want to shop elsewhere for your eiderdown needs. Once again, I should know for I have tried. When you factor in cost, the quality of the product and the magnitude of service. Purchasing eiderdown from Icelandic down is second to none.
Jaron Frost | DECEMBER, 2020
We ordered a king size comforter and it's a touch of haven on earth. The down is incredibly light and cover fabric is soft and high quality. Ragna was extremely helpful answering all my questions and shipping was prompt. We really enjoyed the personal attention we received from this small company, great overall purchasing experience. Highly recommend.
Marta Unnarsdottir | JUNE 2021
The added bonus, of course, has been the genuine romance of bringing a piece of Icelandic nature and craftsmanship into our home, something that was particularly meaningful in our case, since Gail's grandparents were emigrants from Iceland. We tell ourselves that the duvet we now enjoy is natural, environmental, and humane, as well as being pure indulgence. Don't hesitate to take the plunge yourself.
Timothy and Gail | APRIL, 2022
We have now slept under our wonderful new duvet for just over two weeks. It is as light as gossamer, and promotes a perfect temperature for each of us in a different way - gone are the hot water bottles and the cold knees! It has transformed our sleeping experience. Ragna has been extremely helpful throughout the process, and we are deeply grateful to her and her team, and particularly to the Avian members for supplying their magical down.
Paula and Jai | NOVEMBER 2021
I wish I could express how truly special it is to sleep under something so exquisite and so pure. To know I’m supporting a business that puts animal welfare at the forefront of everything means the world to me. I’m sleeping under a quilt where no birds are harmed and that gives me such a good feeling. I chose Icelandic down to make my king size doona because the quality is far superior to anything else on the market. I’m in Sydney Australia and searched the world for the best bedding and I know I found it. Ragna was so much help. She should be very proud of what she has created. The world needs more people like you Ragna. Thank you for my doona, I will always cherish it.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

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.

How is Icelandic eiderdown better than other down?

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

We also have strict quality controls with government-appointed inspectors. This guarantees that our eiderdown is of the highest quality and authenticity, which can often be an issue with other suppliers.

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.

For a full list of fill weights, click here for duvets/comforters, and here for pillows.

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.

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.
Learn more.

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 [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.
