Let your inner crafter go wild! There's no telling where your imagination and creativity will take you with these all natural pheasant feathers. Each feather is has a striking pattern of dark and light reddish brown stripes, almost like tiger stripes. Very pretty!
These feathers are rather delicate, so if you want to use them in fans, to use with smudging or incense, you will need to combine them with beefier feathers that will move air more effectively.
Many people like to use feathers on their pagan altar as a symbol of the element of Air.
You will receive a set of 5 brown striped pheasant feathers. Lengths vary, but most are between 6" and 7" long. Please keep in mind, these are a natural product. It seems silly to say this, but these were not mass produced in a factory somewhere with precision machining. There will be variations and minor imperfections. That's part of their beauty. Like snowflakes, each one is unique.
What else can I use my feathers for? Use them for quill pens, or costume components, or cat toys. Attach them to hats or masks. Mix and match them with other feathers to make fans. Use them as a canvas to paint on. Incorporate them in dream catchers. Add them to floral arrangements. So many possibilities!
Will my feathers have an unpleasant smell? Because of the process used to clean them, your feathers may retain a hint of a moth ball type smell. It is best to take them out of their plastic bag and let them air for a day or two before you use them.
