Alpaca Dubbing Several Color Choices – Alpaca-Dub

$ 3.99

Alpaca dubbing is some of the lightest and strongest natural fiber in the world! It’s widely believed that alpaca fur has the most perfect combination of characteristics to make it the best dry fly dubbing on earth. Hollow core, extremely lightweight, water resistant/repellent and it dubs freaking awesome!

Not only is alpaca fur in general quite strong, but this dubbing is created from a line of award winning alpacas that I personally helped to shear. Every fiber you’ll find in this dubbing I’ve selected as it was removed from the animal. Whether you are tying dry flies, streamers or nymphs, you’ll find that this alpaca dubbing is easy to work with and extremely effective on your flies.

This alpaca dubbing has been dyed using a mild process, which equates to better floating and all other natural qualities of alpaca fur remaining intact. We offer this amazing dubbing in a variety of top notch colors to tie most insect patterns. As time goes on you can rest assured that we’ll be adding more alpaca dubbing colors to our lineup as well!

Description

Alpaca fur is probably the strongest hair of all mammals. In Peru, it is widely believed that bridges through the Andes mountains canyons were made in part with alpaca wool. Since you aren’t here to build a bridge, I’ll tell you a bit more about why alpaca wool is the worlds best dry fly tying dubbing. Tests at Gaston college in 2009 determined that alpaca fiber is essentially water repellent. The testing crew found it almost impossible to saturate the fiber. This should be triggering bells and whistles to everyone who ties dry flies!

I’ve been testing this dubbing like crazy and I have found its properties nothing short of amazing. Easy to dub with, floats like the dickens and looks great on the hook. You’ll love this stuff!
