Skunk Tail fibres are coarser than bucktail, and also shorter. They have a texture similar to the guard hair of a porcupine. Undyed their colour is white with black tips, when dyed this gives a superb 2 tone effect. Skunk tail fibres will add an interesting effect to any hair wing patterns.
Mink makes a really good alternative to stoat, and the tails are longer with far more hair.
First quality, full tails. Soft and fine fibres that "quiver and shiver" in running water without being moved.
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.
