I looked at some photos of feather duster worms and these don't look like that but maybe they are in the beginning of growth ?

Feather dusters should have a tube and then a small feathery looking appendage that comes out and retracts back into the tube. Stringy doesn't sound like feather dusters. Try and get a picture
