[QUOTE="Brian Ahern, post: 51847, member: 136735"] Feathers are one thing, but WINGS? Ick! It is surprising today (even to a leather-shoe-wearing meat-eater like me) how comfortable people used to be wrapping themselves in dead things. I remember my parents talking about their mothers wearing stoles (fox? mink?) that still had heads and limbs attached. The mouths had steel clamps in them to hold the furs in place when wrapped around the neck. My mother remembers playing with her mother's in church. This is going back to the 1940's. [/QUOTE]
