AN ONLINE STORE FOR PREMIUM DECORATIVE FEATHERS SINCE 2001
Our company was founded in 1973 by Tony Hill, a professional fly tyer. We began selling decorative feathers as an attractive sideline while exhibiting at craft fairs, art shows, and outdoor shows. We went online with a variety of decorative feathers for sale in 2001 around the time Tony retired from fly tying. Lamplight Feather is pleased to provide the best quality and service for online shoppers searching for decorative feathers for sale. Our feathers are used for costume, millinery, dance and fashion designs, home, office or event décor, craft projects, floral display, wedding and holiday decoration, feather earrings, and other creative uses.
PEACOCK FEATHERS: Natural peacock feathers are available for sale online in a variety of sizes and types. These include full length, natural peacock eyed tail feathers, peacock swords, and combos of both in our popular decorator mixes. White peacock are available seasonally. They are very much in demand for wedding decoration. The dramatically marked peacock wing quills are attractive hat feathers while the green and blue plumage is among our most popular craft feathers. Peacock eyed feathers and herl (flues) are used in crafts, trim and fringe, decorative ornaments, earrings, hair styling, costumes, and fashion applications.

DYED PEACOCK FEATHERS: Peacock feathers can be dyed over the natural feather creating an item called stem dyed . The white stem of the feather picks up the brightest of the dye color with the eye and herl tinted into attractive variations of color. Peacock eye tails and swords are also bleached producing a lovely light to dark ivory tone. The natural bleached feathers are popular as an ivory or light tan but are also dyed to stunning effect. Bleached and dyed eyed tail feathers and bleached and dyed peacock swords are generally available in fifteen colors: red, black, gold, purple, lime, green, blue, pink, yellow, burgundy, brown, dusty rose, fuchsia, turquoise, and orange.

The term “ostrich feather” generally refers to “drab” or body feather for the ostrich. We stock this in five sizes from mini to over 22 inches. Drabs tend to have shorter flues and thinner stems than the plumes but the best of them can often rival the plumes in quality and length.
