|We always used to get excited when we opened a package of schlappen and
found the one or two feathers that seemed to not matt together like all of the
other "regular" schlappen.....they were perfect as spey hackle.
Our new process takes our extra large schlappen and removes all of the
webby microfibers that make the barbs stick together. We also rehydrate the
feathers so that the stem is left supple and not at all brittle like so many
other commercial spey substitutes.This fine product gives the same look as
burnt goose shoulders, except the stems are much thinner and not at all
brittle. No need to soak these plumes in warm water before you spin them
Packages come with 25-35 feathers.
