Mink makes a really good alternative to stoat, and the tails are longer with far more hair. The fibres of fur are around the same length as stoat and just as mobile in the water. We also use mink as a replacement for squirrel in many patterns. Relatively soft with a fantastic sheen. Very good winging material.
Superb, fish-attracting sparkle. Traps air bubbles for a lifelike look. Great for durable wing casings, spinner wings, shucks, and upright wings on parachutes.
Silver Fox Tail£5.00
This dyed black silver fox tail is excellent quality with an average hair length of between 90 -110mm.
Krinkle Mirror Flash£4.99
A version of Mirror Flash which has a crinkle effect that exaggerates the reflective qualities of this vibrant material. Will mimic falling scales of a wounded baitfish.
Its corrugated fibres reflect light like no other material.
Long Haired Chinese Goat£4.75
This is a very mobile, strong material, with an average length of 6''.
Long and fine hairs. Used for wings and tails. Try it also as a body material, as it makes good segmented bodies.
