sculpin wool

I've never tried this stuff. Is there a particular wool or source that anyone feels strongly about?

All it is is sheep's wool on the skin dyed whatever color you want. Brand doesn't matter since it is all the same stuff.

FWIW I like making "woolheads" out of arctic fox or australian possum better than rams wool. Both are finer and easier to work with - particualry the fox. I like the possum the best. But it is more expensive than wool.

Don't know if this would work or not.....Saw a 4' x 6'
virgin wool rug with back attached for $38.00 Cdn
at Costco. You could get some buds together and divide it up
and get the unit cost down.
Enough wool between you to last the rest of your life.
Get the white and dye what ever you need. Not bad
length on the wool either.

I have been playing with Hook and Loop rug yarn and EP fibers as alternate to wool and really like it. I seem to never find the right colors and don't fool with dyes as it can be very messy.

I use Ram's wool...just sheeps wool as indicated above. It makes great heads and will not float up like deerhair heads.

Mike Kinney uses Rams wool on his steelhead sculpin pattern. Comes in some very interesting colors and trims up real nice.
