Product Description

Kapok Dubbing is half the thickness of superfine dubbing! Some tyers refer to it as ‘instant moles fur’ or ‘moles fur in different colors’ as its rather similar with a very short fiber. It is absolutely ideal for tiny driy flies and great for nymphs. It provides perfect definition on small flies instead of an ‘explosion’ of bulky traditional dubbing on a small hook.  The ultrafine thiness allows for precise tapers (and lots of forgiveness for the tyer!).  We love this dubbing for small dries and RS2s.  We also like the colors for small hot spot colors on Jig Patterns.  

Kapok (Ceiba pentandra) is a natural fiber, it has been available for many years growing throughout the tropics. It is a moisture-resistant, quick drying, resilient, and buoyant fiber and weighs only one-eighth as much as cotton -- great for dry flies! Kapok has historically been used in life jackets and life boats, supporting as much as 30 times its own weight in water.

Traditionally Kapok is very difficult to dye however the team at Semperfli have been working with computer based dying machinery which has enabled it to bulk dye Kapok Dubbing with repeatable colors every time. 

Individual Kapok Dubbing Adams fibres are on average 1.8cm/0.7”, with diameters of 30 to 36 micrometres (a micrometre is about 0.00004 inch) making it finer than even the smallest superfine dubbing, indeed HALF the thickness of superfine dubbings on the market but with its unique extreme buoyancy.
