These real ostrich feathers are called "spadones." They are between 19-29 inches long (48 - 75 cm) but being a natural product no two feathers are alike and the length varies as does the width and fluffiness of the plumage. Some taper to a fine spindly point, while others are trimmed. Some are straight, others curve or droop. Some have thinner plumage, small gaps in the plumage or wispy ends but this is natural occurrence. Some have white or darker patches on the stalk depending on the dye process but they are all good quality as I weed out the most defective to sell in bargain packs.
You will receive a pack of 5 feathers of 1 colour or there's the option of a mix. Colours available are white, black, cream, grey, dark brown, golden brown, Red, Orange, Yellow, Lime, Emerald green, Turquoise, Royal Blue, light blue, purple, Lilac, light pink shocking pink, Magenta, , Cerise, dusky pink and burgundy or a mix. Please state which colours you'd like or I'll send a random selection. Please note the photo is as accurate as possible but shades can vary slightly from time to time.
White and cream feathers are often used in table displays at weddings. Black is often used in horse's plumes. Bright colours are popular for showgirl, carnival costume, headdresses, burlesque fans and exotic dancing. Subtle shades like brown and grey are ideal for period Drama costumes. They have many other uses - even for pets or for tickling!
