Eiderdown Heaven...

Oh there's nothing better than curling up on the couch wrapped in a comfy Eiderdown. Someday, when I'm an old lady, I hope to have more eiderdowns than I know what to do with. I'm hoping my home looks something like this.

The pictures are beautiful but I have no idea what Eiderdown is. Could you enlighten me please?

Becky~ They're beautiful soft quilts/comforters, not so easy to come across in the U.S.

ei·der·down [ dər dòwn ] (plural ei·der·downs)
Definition:
1. eider duck's feathers: the soft fluffy breast feathers of the female eider duck, used for stuffing pillows and bed coverings

2. bed covering: a warm bed covering in the form of a quilt or duvet stuffed with feathers
