Default Re: Identify the material

I got one of those (undyed) a couple of years ago from Steve Cooper at Cookshill; still haven't tied anything with it. I was going to use it for one of Stewart's Spider patterns, but I never got around to it.

I think that your picric dying does wonders for this material, Laurie. Those spiders that you put up on the other thread looks great!

I will put a few photos on later as I am away now to a duck shoot ,this week we are shooting 450 mallard so I should get a good stock of bronze mallard and CDC .
Pretty simple actually, considering you posted the spiders at the same time. I just read the materials list.

Are you selling any of those jackdaws crowns?

Hi Eunan
The crowns will be on my website Monday,dyed and natural.
I will be dyeing Squirrell up black for the website next week, we tried it for bibios earlier this year and it worked great,as you do not need to put a hackle on the pattern,the squirrel spikes out when you dub it on so you have a hackle effect.
We are experimenting on a few new variations over the winter.
