Matuka Wings
By Henry Hoffman, Oregon

Use rooster flank feathers (from breast) to make Matuka wings.

To keep these wing feathers from rolling out of allignment, cut barbs off the side that is going next to the body.

The stubble left from cutting the feathers digs into the chenille.

Tie on the two far side feathers first, then the two near side ones. Don't attempt all four at once! ~ HH
