Thumbs up Skunks with skunks

I have had some good luck with skunk hair.
Good sub. for Black Bear.
Are they winter or Summer hides.
I pefer summer hair like bear it is long and more soft.
It is good for weaving hackles and very good for collers.

Will take bleach start with .05% by voulume.
If you are not familure with the term any Hair dresser can help you.
May take seveal beachings to get the shade you want.
Hope this helps
