How to Clean Feathers
Many Fiber Artists love spinning feathers into their yarn, or using them in weavings and other fiber art projects. Here is a simple tutorial you can follow to wash chicken or other feathers for use in arts and crafts.
- Fill a small bowl with 3 cups of warm water
- Add 2 drops of Fibre Wash (scented) or Beyond Fibre Wash (unscented)
- Mix the Fibre Wash into the water
- Dip the feather into the soap water, gently wipe across the feather from the quill to the tip with your fingers, and lay on a paper towel to dry.
