I agree Gary, they sure make my ties look dismal. Garhan where do you get the nice wide peacock herl, mine is very narrow? Thank you.

This specifically comes from the peacock eye. I purchase the stems at either Michaels craft stores or a the Dollar Store. Regular herl I purchase in 12 oz bundles at any of the LFS around town.
