I have only used marabou a couple of times, but apparently thats what it does regardless!.
I did read a post that someone suggested getting the fluff away from the rope it is attached to and cut as close to the rope part (if that makes sense??). Also you could put a piece of tape around where you want to cut and cut the tape. I just try to cut the rope part and put a dab of glue on the end to sort of seal it. It still sheds tho'!!!!

I read somewhere that someone uses their handy vac (little hand held vacuum) while they are cutting so all the 'fly-aways' are sucked up...they have it on while they are cutting. HTH

I get my boas and sit outside and do all my cutting, and I also bring the glue gun along on the porch and get the "puffs" made. I am COVERED in feathers when I'm done. Then I store them in a plastic tote or 2 depending on how many I've made. I need to get a big batch made before it gets too cold!

I take scotch tape, and tape where I need to cut, and this helps cut down on the shedding.....
