Kapok Dry Fly Dubbing Dispenser is a blend of natural and fluoro colours for the ultimate in dubbing for all your dry fly needs!
Kapok is a natural hollow fibre that when Kapok Dry Fly Dubbing Mayfly Dispenser is dubbed into split thread retains its buoyancy and will help your dry flies float better than any other natural dubbing- it is half the thickness of superfine dubbing!
Kapok (Ceiba pentandra) is a natural fibre, it has been available for many years growing throughout the tropics where it is cultivated for its fibres. It is a moisture-resistant, quick-drying, resilient, and buoyant fibre and weighs only one-eighth as much as cotton.
Kapok has historically been used in life jackets and lifeboats, supporting as much as 30 times its own weight in water.
Traditionally Kapok is very difficult to dye however the team at Semperfli has been working with computer-based dying machinery which has enabled it to bulk dye Kapok Dry Fly Dubbing Mayfly Dispenser with repeatable colours every time. With Kapok Dry Fly Dubbing Mayfly Dispenser fibres buoyancy is lost slowly, tests have left it for days in test baths and it very slowly over days absorbs water.
This comes in our low profile dubbing boxes. Each compartment contains the same amount of dubbing that you get in a standard dubbing dispenser.
