Pale yellow silk, thread very lightly dubbed ideally with mole fur so the colour of the thread shines through the dubbing.
Gun metal grey waterhen / moorhen feather
In Mike Harding's book on Northen spiders there is a delightful quote: "The mole fur must be dubbed, according to Malcolm Greenhalgh, very lightly, “as light as your mother-in-law’s beard.”
Critical to tying spiders is the sparseness of the hackles. You should not have more than 2 turns of hackle on a northern spider. Less is more!

On time, as ordered..just what I needed!
