    One thought on “Eiderdown”

    1. This kindle freebie is nice short essay about the harvesting of Eiderdown. It is a very interesting and lovely essay. Quite nice.

    2. Interesting but short. I didn't realize it was so short since I got it on Kindle and it was done way before I was done learning from it.

    3. Clearly not a book, but an essay and not a long essay at that, nevertheless this is a fascinating look at the world of the eider duck whose down is world famous for its warmth factor and insulating properties. So much valued that it has its own market in the Russian, Chinese and Japanese arenas.

    4. I knew it was only a short essay when I started it (free kindle version) but was still disappointed at the brevity of it. It is just enough to whet your appetite! It was almost like a magazine article in tone. 4 stars because it was well written and interesting.

    5. An interesting and engaging insight into a product most people would have heard of but probably know next to nothing about.
