Muskrat Soft hackle

đź‘Ť

Very nice.  Is that muskrat bleached or naturally that lite.  Mine is a much darker gray.

The muskrat was natural. It looks darker in the clump, but when dubbed very sparse it looks really light.

Your dyed colors are brilliant and have encouraged me to dig out my dying materials and give it a shot again. Used to do a lot of it back in the late 90's. Be interesting to see if my old dyes still work.
