Item details

Complete Poe Poe if Ilima Goose Coquille ie the Kaahumanu Lei Kit - FREE SHIP domestic
3 ounces strung Ilima goose coquille feathers fluffed cleaned and ready to clip, 2 lei keys (1 for measuring one for tying) central base of ribbon and yarn . Complete directions and a few inches of the lei started, plus a 3rd Hand is now included to make a complete kit. As of 3/19 i've added the hard to come by sharp nippers. Additional thread is required

Complete instructions include making the central core, use of key (prepping feathers) and tying on wili wili. The wili wili tie is not unusual a simple slip knot, however it is important to note the same wili wili is used on the voyaging canoes, fish nets, paniolo and he'e lures. It is the combination of the wrapwrap ie wiliwili of the thread that covers not only the feather that was just placed but also all the feathers behind the current feather.

The Queen Kaahumanu lei is part of the Society regalia with specific (bylaw) measurements of total length, width, color of satin ribbon, length of feathers - the lei you are making is Central Maui's chapter specifications. Check with your local chapter to ensure the lei will be correct.

Estimated time to complete a 30 inch lei - 2- 5 hours in prep, 16 =30 hours tying wili wili - 15 minutes to complete the ribbon base. It is advised to complete lei in 4-6 sittings, as tension will change every time lei is put on hold.
The beauty of this lei is the consistency of the feathers, and tension, - value of completed well done lei starts at $330.00
