Default Wondering about Marabou vs. Ostrich

Hello all,

For those of you that have experience using feathers in your accessories, can you tell which look better. I know that marabou is probably cheaper, but does it get wispy like the ostrich can?

Also, can you recommend the best priced place to buy from?

Thanks y'all!

I think it's more a matter of the look you are trying to achieve and personal preference.

The ostrich puffs do seem more expensive, so all other factors being equal you are probably better off with marabou.

We sell marabou, ostrich and curly ostrich in our shop and it is a matter of preference and project i would say the most popular is curly ostrich, it is also the most expensive so it just depends on your preference

I heard ostrich is very difficult to find. I love it hairbows but have no clue where to look to get it. SOmething about it being seasonal?
Anyone have any tips?
