Robert,

rich mc is having problems ... He shoudl be back online soon.  But, he E-mailed a reply for you.  

This is his reply (sic)

 

"i will have my puter back tuesday night maybe then i can get backon.   robert m asked about patons chenille.  patons is still available on ebay in certain colors. most chenille will work for the shannon streamer since its wrapped against itself. problem is they dont work for the tail . patons has 4 core threads , other just two and the fibers will pull out.  this past year i have started to use wendy eider chunky yarn for the shannons. makes them much easier to cast.  rich mc"
