Default Re: Leeches

He actually sells Simi Seal leeches. I thought I was the only one who was using it for leeches...lol. I had that material, and thought it would make a wonderful leech...and it has been my go to leech material ever since. I use Mohair Yarn too, but I really love the Simi Seal. I am so glad you posted that link. (but my I am itching to try out some of those other products though...lol)

Yup, he's been making them for quite awhile. You can find a very old web article where he describes making them with a dubbing loop and a wire rib.

but now he makes them like this.



I have been trying it for all kinds of things like mini gurglers.
