My â€œSynthetic Yak hairâ€ post dated 2011-06-21 provided me with answers from Jonny, Henry, Lee, Jay and others about synthetic fly tyinâ€™ material.
Jay sent me some basic gray, chartreuse and white wig hair and the website info on the label took me straight to the manufacturer! I discovered that synthetic wig hair is available at local beauty supply stores, used for ladies hair extensions, braids, etc.
I discovered textures that were likely the source for EP fiber, slinky, kinky, silky fine, course, translucent, neon, etc â€¦.. you name it.
Looks like fly shop fiber to me except for cost. One hank will last a lifetime!
My research answered my original question about natural yak hair and synthetic.
I choose synthetic for large and small flies - better action in the water for my flies â€“ yours may be different.
Thanks to all for your help.
