I have a pattern which calls for lime green elk hair. My question is do any of you have a supplier who carries odd colored elk hair or suggestions for dyeing my own? (an area I've pretty much tried to avoid)

They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cockís wattles, and which in colour are like wax.
