Poor Quality,
15 March 2013
By: 907AKspey
from Alaska
"The ostrich herls that I got were pretty poor quality. Very sparse, and very small. I was expecting a bigger plume than what I received. The pictures make it look bigger, perhaps a tap measure laid across the middle of the plume would be a good visual assistant to avoid further confusion."
