Llama Dubbing!
 One of the softest natural dubbing available, these five natural  shades come in a generous 3" x 5" bag - enough to tie dozens of flies!   The fibres are 'lineally aligned', meaning they are parallel to one another allowing for easy application to a thread or wire when spinning into a brush or use the same way as any other dubbing material you are familiar with.
 
 Mix with our Magic Flash synthetic enhancing fibres to get great color shades in a coffee grinder.   Dye your own color to 'match the hatch' - instructions courtesy of Carol Wright are below.
 
 With no oils these fibres naturally float due to the tiny air cells within the hairs and pick up small air bubbles in the water to take on a natural insect imitating 'iridescence' in the water.   These soft fibres encourage better bites by not making your fly hard or artificial in texture.
