    RK, I've had really good quality ostrich from here http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Crystal-Bristol

    Also handy for picking up Rastafarian string vests which look good under the fishing waist coat on Hampshire chalkstreams.

    Cannot help you on the raffia though. I've only ever seen it natural - but then it is not something I usually look out for.

    Wink Ostrich herl

    RK;

    my local haberdashery shop sells 24" single feathers with masses of individual herl on them. I picked up 5 different colours including white.

    Felt a bit pervy stalking round a dressmaking shop though.
    Good source of beads sequins and hook threaders too.
    They're used to me now
