These feathers are from my happy free-range birds, this includes chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, peafowl and guineas. I wrap them in leather, faux leather, suede or cotton and tie the handle with either hemp or cotton. I can add beads or charms to them as well.
The great thing about natural feathers are if they get wet, they dry back to their natural shape quickly, however, take care because even though they are tough, they can still break.
These make great smudging fans but can be good on a hot day standing in front of the stage or walking the forest. They're fancy fans
