Hreidur 2015It’s still freezing in the north of Iceland – in Melrakkaslétta – the only part of Iceland that actually touches the polar circle,but in a few weeks time we are hoping that the eider will have started to lay eggs and produce this greyish and visually unimpressive material – the eiderdown. It’s because of the eider that one aspect of farming is still very attractive in Melrakkaslétta where sheep, cows and horses have all but disappeared.
