Description

Extremely rare these tiny blue Jay wing feathers have a distinctive striped pattern (natural colour - no dyes used)

Measuring just 1-1.5 inches they are perfect for making jewellery or small dreamcatchers.

Please note these are Eurasian Jay feathers and not the American Blue Jay 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 & Countryside Act of 1981. 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.

Points & Rounds are available so please specify if you have a preference, otherwise I will just pick the best quality/closely matching pairs I have available.

Returns and exchange details

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

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.

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.

* NATURALLY SHED - I have a limited number of Naturally Shed feathers as these can only be taken from DOMESTICALLY kept birds. The birds are frozen before the feathers are taken to ensure they are free from mites & disease.

** PLEASE NOTE it's not possible to collect naturally shed feathers from wild birds -
usually they are protected by wildlife conservation laws, they cover large areas
of land and shed their feathers little and often. If found at all, they've usually
become dirty and damaged and can also be prone to carrying mites or disease
(yuk!)

* FARM/FACTORY SOURCED - These are usually a bi-product of the meat industry (although some birds are clipped). These are chemically treated for mites & disease and have often gone through a chemical dye process to achieve a bright color.
