This smudge fan has been carefully crafted in our home on the edge of Anglezarke. The wing is from a goose which was killed in a collision with a car. The fan is set in cow hide and finished with a line of rabbit fur, which is from wild english rabbits which are managed as part of a wildlife conservation programme.
The energy of Goose is of bravery and loyalty, because of its behaviour during migration. As the birds travel to new ground, should one become injured, another goose will break free from the flock to stay behind with the wounded goose. This is an amazing display of gallantry and care. The goose is also a very skilled navigator, and it’s energy can support you in finding your sense of direction to get your life back on track if you have wandered off a little from where you want to be.
All of our smudge come with a “7-day trial period”, to allow you time to hold it in your hands, ensuring that you are right for each other. If you decide that you aren’t, you have time to return your smudge fan and choose another from our collection.
About the making of our smudge fans:
We only ever source our feathers and wings ethically, from birds which have died in their natural environment, and never from birds which have been shot.
Our feathers and wings come from birds which have been killed by cars and are lying on the side of the road as we drive past, or from loose feathers and parts of wings we find when we are out and about walking the moors, woodlands or coastline.
The leather we use is from Red Deer in Scotland, or cow hide, and the Rabbit fur is from rabbits which are culled as part of a wildlife management project in England.
