Default Purple jujubee- anyone have any

I was wondering if anyone has any they could either tie of have access to that I could buy. I caught quite a few fish in Co on them and would love to see if the purple would work in Mo. I bought some before we came home and I think my wife tossed them on accident because I left them in the plastic cup. I can't find the purple anywhere online and I don't tie flies (yet!)

Planettrout - looks b-e-a-utiful! The ones I was using didn't have a tail but I like tail!
Stl Geoff - that sounds like a plan

I just haven't gotten into tying yet because I am afraid it will consume my life
