Why is eiderdown so expensive?

Answer:

Eiderdown is considered one of the rarest luxuries of the world and is found only in the deserted nests of the wild Eider duck. It is highly prized, as its down clusters are the largest and most resilient. Since this down is collected by hand from nests, the amount of down available per year is very limited. The supply is low and the demand is high, so the price really reflects the supply/demand equation more than the quality of the down itself - Cuddledown considers its 800 Fill Power European White Goose Down to be a much better value than Eiderdown because the supply of this special goose down is much greater than the supply of Eiderdown.
