I've done a few, use embroidery floss. Seperate the strands if its too thick.

Weave whatever you please! Floss is good, wire, chenille, dubbing brushes, ostrich herl/plumes, etc.

I second the embroidery floss. Your local fabric store should have it
I think the brand is UMC?? But its cheap and is sold in small bundles like shoelaces and it comes it every color under the sun.

I usually tie beadheads in sizes 8-12 on straight and curved hooks. 3 strands should work but you will have to experiment if you go bigger or smaller. I have had good success with brown/orange, Olive and orange, Brown and Yellow/Amberish color ribbed with copper wire and spiky hairs ear fur head.

Embroidery Floss. Weaving a body is not that difficult once you get the hand of it.

Embroidery floss is good but anything that won't break will work , try a combo of embroidery floss and thin swannundaze. Chenille and floss and herl etc.

Uni-floss ribbed with small ultra wire. The Uni floss is spooled so you can use it in a bobbin which makes weaving much easier.

Bring that to fly tying night. I'll take some pictures and put it on my WEB site.

I donated that to our banquet under a glass dome and I think it went for around $60.00 or so. I may have another that I will bring if I can find it.
