I recently received 4 bags of seal fur as a gift. I've had some from the early 70's years and I always remembered it as being hard to dub bodies with. Lately I've been using the split thread method for dubbing bodies and I've noticed two things. One, it's a way of getting a nice tight, small body and two, it takes way less dubbing. Though splitting a 6/0 thread isn't the easiest and I don't understand how Hans splits 12/0. It seems the amount of fur I use now for a fully dubbed body is about the same as I used to use for a pinch of dubbing when rolling the dubbing around a waxed tying thread. Looks like I will get reacquainted with seal fur for it's translucence and kinkiness.
