Authentic African Porcupine Quills, 5 pieces, Quill Needles for Quillwork, Craft and Jewelry Making / Black, Brown, White / Supplies
Beautiful African Porcupine Quills, in a rich mixture of Black, Dark Brown and White and ready to be used. Our Porcupine Quills are long and thin on both sides, averaging 1.5mm to 4mm thick, some will be thiner and some will be a little thicker. Porcupine Quills were used as home adornments and in tribal jewelry, but they have been used in many ways, from modern fashion jewelry, crafts, basketry, hair sticks, costumes, art projects and more. Just let your creativity flow! African Porcupines Quill Needles are smooth and have sharp tips, so please be careful. African Porcupine Quills do not have the microscopic reverse barbs, like the American Porcupines do. These quills have been naturally harvest and no harm done to the animal. The quills will fall out easily and regrow quickly.
I have read that some quills are harvest by finding them in the ground, but some are harvested from live animals. The cool thing is that, they only need a cloth which they use to massage the animal and by touching or dropping the animal, the quills would just fall and then, they regrow in no time at all. How cool!
