more brittle compared to deer hair.

Antelope hair is usually sold in patches that are a couple inches square and from the belly section of the animal. Prices are reasonable.

HAIR STACKER
When tying a fly using antelope hair, you might want to use a hair stacker to line up the hair tips for a neat appearance and flow in the design.

When buying any hair or fur that is on the hide, the hide should be soft and pliable. The hide should be scrapped clean of any residue.

Commercially available antelope hair bought in a fly tying shop should be clean and free from insects. If acquiring antelope hair from
a hunter then precautions need to be taken to avoid insects or other critters that could infest your other fly tying supplies.
