Re: Doug Does Dubbing

I've been experimenting with my coffee grinder and mixing small batches with materials like sparkle yarn, ala, Gary LaFontaine. I'm sure the otter, beaver, and mink underfurs make good dubbing, but other than hare's mask, squirrel, and rabbit... what other furs should I be thinking of using. and wh...
