Hi all

By watching Oliver Edwards video clip, The Weaver Nymph ,  i wanted to ty such a pattern.

My problem is to get such long Ostrich Hearl feathers with very long fibers.

Has anyone an idea where to buy in Europe?

Would be nice to get help.

Best regards

Thilo

Thilo,
What may help is looking for more than just ostrich Herl, examples being ostrich tail feathers or wing feathers. You may find such feathers at angus angling or buy feathers.co.uk . Hobby shops that carry feathers often have these long billowy plumes also.

You often see the larger plumes on ebay's craft section
