There is a picture of the 477 sub on the get-slotted website.

It looks a lot like the dubbing I made after chopping / blending the Shetland Spindrift #290 Oyster yarn.

That’s what I thought too. The flies tied with it, shown on FB, especially look like #290. The real stuff is 85% pale wool and 15% brownish pink nylon. I thought about blending it myself and having it milled into yarn but decided it wasn’t worth it. To my eye the Berocco yarn is close enough.

I have PLENTY of the Oyster 290 yarn if you want the yarn or dubbing....I can send either or both to you.

Bob, You could send me a sample if you want. I have enough Berocco yarn to last for the rest of my days and beyond.

Bob,

Maybe Vicuña Dubbing is onto something. Maybe I should give it a try.
