The Eider Duck (Anas Platythynchos) is a wild protected species and its origins are located in the Nordic European region. The females lay their eggs in nests, covering and protecting them by plucking their own down from their breasts. Farmers can only collect the down from the empty nests. That is, once the eggs hatch and the ducklings, together with the female, abandon the nests.
This exclusive brown down offers unique features such as thermic-isolation, lightness, elasticity and cohesion. This down is very scarce, and its difficult collection and treatment make it a very exclusive and expensive product.
Ferdown only selects the highest quality and most prestigious Icelandic Eider down.
