Might be the best solution, Martin.
And after that you'd be our main provider, could increase the price because of scarcity and become immensely rich!
Joking on the right part of the sentence, but not on the left one.

No I don't Jos, selling over the back of fellow modelers isn't my cup of tea. Found a seller who's only selling at store owners, by 500gr, 8 and 200 kg and ditched them a mail for prices. As I have a company they shure would sell to me..just waiting for prices...let you know..

Hi there,
IŽve read to whole thread and the trees are amazing and also the diorama is...And also an very helpful "how to".
So now I have to look out to the shops (baumarkt) here in Germany if I could find some of those fibers...I need a lot of trees for my Canadian BC-Rail Layout
Thanks for the tutorial about making real looking trees.IŽll give it a try,soon.

Thanks Chris!

"Baumarkt" is ok but also give it a try with the fibers "Manfred, der Baumbauer" sells on his webpage: http://www.modellbaum-manufaktur.de/
and search for "Baumbauzubehör"...
In my opinion the fibers from "WOOLY"are the " best".
I mean "the best" in combination with the 6 and or 2 mm grassfibers...but that is of course a" matter of taste"..//or how you like to work with these materials!
Here a link to a internetshop in my country where you could order/buy these fibers....
http://www.biss.nl/floral/webshop/wooly/377-wooly-groen-per-125-gram.html
and here in Germany:
http://www.deko-versandshop.de/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=decotwister&x=0&y=0
The colors showed on that German websitesite have to be modified of course, so spray the fibers , when added on the frame in a darker more natural/realistic color....

Hi Jos,
Thanks a lot for the links.
IŽve found the "deko-Versandshop" link on google...SO IŽll look around and give it a try...IŽll let you know when I get the things together and will start with modelling a "Baum" (tree)
Here in Germany on the "Hagebaumarkt" there is a big department with all kind of deca and artist things.Maybe IŽll get something over there.Have to go there next week for buying some things for the benchwork...

Jos, to be sure to avoid any error, is the image below the wooly fiber you recommend on the internet shop in Nederlands?

Hello Frederic,

Yes Frederic it is one of the type/colors of fibers that can be ordered on the internetshop.
Helas there are no "natural" colored fibers

May be searching some more on the internet and I think there'll be a company that sells the "mocca" or black, brown/red fibers???
The biggeest problem is , Frederic, I cannot see/feel the fibers on the picture...maybe they are like the fibers Woodland scenics sells =very thin..
the ones I use are (a fraqction of) a tenth of a mm thicker than the ones from WS but that feature makes the difference to me! and in the end of treebuilding: a more realistic/natural tree!

Martin thanks for the link!!!
Frederic:
I think these are natural fibers made from sisal so I think they are to "stiff"/thick/heavy for the purpose we want to use them= small twigs for the "leaves"....specialy for deciduous trees.
