These feathers are processed through a very gentle bleaching process. The feathers are lightened up
before they are dyed, this gives us the ability to not only create a brighter colour, it also allows us

tubes or very fine collars for shrimp and prawn patterns. The overall length of these plumes is
between 4-7 inches from tip to tip.
