The two capes Dave sent from Feather Emporium are beautiful, and exactly what I asked Dave to find for me. I've examined them under a magnifier and compared them with other Whiting capes I own. I will probably never buy a cape anywhere else again.

Some guys prefer all natural rooster capes, not dyed. Because the breeders do not always mark on the package whether it is dyed or natural I posted this on my blog to help understand how you can determine if the cape is dyed or natural.

Today, the Whiting dyed Hoffman capes are so awesome in color consistency and hackle quality I personally don't care if it is dyed or not.

Update: I recently had a customer service problem with The Feather Emporium that leads me to rescind my previous positive recommendation. Anyone who is interested in further details may PM me.
