Hopefully ironed out a few previously perpetrated wrinkles with this tie, although omitted the JC and crest over the wing; happier (not 100%) with the floss, even though partially obscured by the purple veilings.
Tip: fine French silver tinsel twist
Tag: yellow silk
Tail: GP crest, and few fibres red-dyed GP tippets
Butt: peacock herl
Body: rear 1/2 - yellow silk with fine French silver twist ribbing, purple 'marabou' fluff as veilings, herl separator; front 1/2 body - black silk with fine French silver tinsel twist ribbing, and orange dyed badger hackle to follow ribbing over black silk
Wing: mixed individual fibres of natural cock pheasant tail, natural Amherst centre tail, and goose secondaries in yellow, orange and purple
Head: peacock herl, black silk to finish with just a dab of varnish
