Item details

Grey wing feathers with a bright green iridescent panel on one side (natural colour - no dyes used). Some will have a white tip but not all.

Measuring just 2-3" inches they are perfect for making jewellery or small dreamcatchers. 

Please note these are Eurasian (or Common) Teal Duck feathers and not the North American Green Winged Teal which are illegal to sell and possess in the US. They have been obtained from the UK by licensed Gamekeepers in accordance with UK Wildlife Conservation Laws. As such they are considered as being ‘Ethically Sourced’.

These are natural feathers and so please expect the odd flaw and pattern variation, but I will always send the best quality that I have available at the time.

Standard postal service is offered as it's cost effective, but this does mean that we are not able to track your order should you select this option. However, proof of postage is always obtained and can be provided on request.

Regrettably we are not able to offer compensation on items sent by standard post should they be lost in transit. If in doubt please upgrade to the Tracked & Signed For service (in which instance we can provide a full refund should the item not be delivered)


Payments

Payment is required prior to shipping.

We try to despatch as early as possible but are happy to cancel any orders up until the point of posting (postage may be deducted if already processed)


Returns & exchanges

Items may be returned in the same condition within 7 days of receipt*
*Glitter & Sparkle Feathers are excluded from our returns policy as these are made-to-order.

Should your feathers arrive with the ends kinked/bent this can easily be resolved by (carefully!) steaming the feathers with a steam iron. Hold the feathers one at a time, taking care not to scold your hand. Use your fingers to brush through the ends until they regain their shape. You can also use this method to refresh feathers that have been blown in the wind or have started to separate.

Please appreciate that these are natural feathers and although we do hand sort for quality some of our feathers will have slight imperfections!

Additional policies

Please note that the majority of our feathers are a bi-product of the meat industry and so may not be suitable for vegans.

Unfortunately it is very difficult to find naturally shed feathers from wild birds - they cover large areas of land and shed their feathers little and often. If found at all, many have then become dirty and damaged.

Our aim is to source cruelty-free feathers from domestic and game birds that have been kept in good conditions (or have lived in the wild) and the feathers have been taken only after they have been killed. Our British sourced feathers are obtained through registered Game Keepers who comply with all UK Game Keeping and Wildlife Conservation regulations. Please note that as a small business we do not have full visibility on how some of our internationally sourced feathers have been obtained and therefore are unable to offer a guarantee on 100% of our feathers. As the business grows we will be in a better position to negotiate with suppliers.

We continue to look for suppliers who can guarantee that they produce naturally shed and cruelty-free feathers. If you can recommend any factories, suppliers or just domestic bird keepers we would love to hear from you!
