California Quail and Beaver

Recieved a care package from Theroe the other day. Several pieces of fur in it. One of the pieces was a beautiful piece of Beaver without guard hairs. Great stuff to work with. It has an amazing shine when spun on pearsall's. Thanks again Dana . More flies to follow with the materials in the package.
