I don;t think it is made anymore, having been replaced by other materials. May I suggest you try Ice dub UV purple by Hareline Dubbin, used in a rope dub or dubbing loop or split thread technique, or SLF's Prism dubbing Hot purple. You can also find a Dark Lilac glimmer chenille on the Sportsman's Warehouse web site packaged by Troutsman's entterprises . I recently read an article in one of the fishing magazines, I can't remember which one, which touted the efficacy of UV dubbing as opposed to the usual dubbing items. So far I've found it very good as a dubbing material for Purple Perils ala Markham and he demands it on his flies. I will probably be tying his version for the fly swap. Hope this might help. Joyce
