You can also use cedar balls, whole cloves (yes, the spice), pest strips and even pieces fluffys dog collar
Poor quality materials are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!
You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.
