  • trim feathers on fans

    I have not been able to find any of the small black tipped white trim feathers that are curved on the top. Lauren used them on some fans in the Misc crafts gallery. She also uses some ultra thin hackle type feathers there an on line supplier or what ???

    I have some Lady Amherst Pheasant neck feathers...But they have a black line at the top & a thinner one a little farther down.
    Also they are straight accross the top ...not curved.
    Thanks far...

      Have you looked at silver pheasants, the majority of their feathers are white with black tips.
