Goose Biot Feather Boas are 2 yards (6 ft) long, and approx 8-10" in diameter. This boa is made from the Goose biot feathers that are trimmed from the short side of the Goose wing quills. Biots are a long stiff narrow feather. This boa is a stunning display piece or great for trimmings, feathers are a bit stiff . Goose boas can be cut with wire cutters without unraveling as feathers are sewn on to a nylon cord and cotton-covered wire. The cotton-covered wire helps the boa keep its shape and not come untwisted, which enables it to be used time and time again without showing wear.
