Good except for fiber length,

"This hair always has a nice color and good coarse fibers for spinning without much underfur but having ordered a couple times in different colors I have noticed the fibers are often too short to be easy to handle and sometimes appear "crushed" like they have a permanent cow-lick.. Also wish they gave you more hair in the package. If you are comfortable working with the shorter fibers it really does spin great though."

"Ordered this for winging and tailing on some dry's I'm tying.
It's strait (that alone is an accomplishment) takes dye well, easy to work with.
Will order this product ( orvis )whenever I need deer hair.
