Alucita montana
By its location, it would be consistent with Alucita montana. Lots of interesting reading at the Genus Info page and at a similar image Photo#42189.

 
Thanks
Also looking at the guide page, it seems that Washington is infested with the little things ;)

How beautiful!
Looks like a decorative pin made of feathers. Nice photography.
