This Just Arrived: Albino Peacock Feathers

Just received a huge shipment of rare and beautiful white albino peacock feathers.

They look great on bridal hats!

Peacock feathers are 'harvested' without harming the birds, when they molt (shed their feathers in preparation for growing new ones) naturally, once per year.

As you can imagine, albino peacocks are rare. Rarer still are the number of people who own one who are willing to go through the trouble of collecting and selling their molted feathers. Being a materials geek, I love anything gorgeous and unusual, so for the last two molting seasons, I have bought almost all of the albino peacock feathers available on the open market.
