Having run out of suitably shaded wool and dubbing for the body on Lady Caroline's ( tying 1/0 to 3/0), I'm attempting to mix my own Dubbing. I've bought some Roving or Felting wool Olive and Brown ( enough of the stuff for 3 quid or so to last a lifetime) to achieve approximately a reasonable shade. However I'm not sure what staple length to cut up for the dubbing. I've tried 20mm and 25mm but not too happy with the result. Is there an ideal staple length I should cut the wool to?
Hey everyone, I had a question about making your own dubbing. Basically, how do you go about doing so? I've never attempted it before and would like any tips on doing so. I would like to make dubbing for nymphs, like the hair's ear pattern and other standard small nymphs. I already have a coffee grinder and I have a rabbit pelt (body section without mask/ears) and a fox squirrel pelt from this past winter. Any tips on how to use these furs would be great. Thanks! Jpm
