ITEMS MAY BECOME COMPACTED DURING SHIPPING, ITEMS WILL RETURN TO FULLER SHAPE AFTER A TIME ONCE THEY ARE UNPACKED AND ALLOWED TO EXPAND UP.
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS: Handle your feathers gently. Avoid breaking shafts or pulling out fibers.
Clean with a soft damp cloth if necessary.
Pack them loosely, allowing the feathers to keep their natural shape.
All feather fibers can be combed gently with a toothbrush. Wing and tail feather fibers that separate can be stroked back together with your fingers, to “zipper” the fibers back in place.
EXPAND/FLUFF feathers back into their natural shape by STEAMING over tea kettle or pan. If steaming ostrich, BOAS: steaming, blow drying or hanging out on clothesline all work well. BLOW DRY them in the direction you wish the fibers to go.
MANY DYED FEATHERS ARE NOT COLORFAST and may bleed onto other feathers or fabrics when wet. PLEASE TEST for colorfast properties before combining with other materials.
If feathers have STATIC from shipping rubbing them with a dryer sheet will resolve the problem."
