I happened to go to a Farmers Market while I was visiting CO recently and was given a good quantity of nicely tanned Buffalo trimmings. I was thankful for the material and sent the gentleman a good quantity of flies that I hope he can use. Anyway, the fur is very wiry and the hair ranges in color from dark cream to near black. If anyone would like a chunk, just send me a SASE (use one that's about 5 x 7) and I'll get some out to you. PM me and I'll respond with my mailing address.
