A feather duster with ostrich feathers is ideal for dusting delicate items which are difficult to keep dust free, such as chandeliers, mini-blinds, collectibles, furniture, antiques, plants, and all other general dusting. The individual feathers are able to penetrate through the ornaments and get the dust out of without disturbing any objects.
Ostrich feathers come in various lengths, in shades of white to dark brown, and fineness. The softest duster has black feathers from the male ostrich. Also the larger or bigger feathers tent to be more softer. Gray ostrich feathers coming from the female birds are not as soft as the black feathers.
The right choice depends very much, on what you want to dust with the feather duster.
For high objects, you need a larger feather duster with a longer stem. Some of our feather dusters come with the option to extend the stem with a broom.
The ostrich is not killed for the feathers.
