Having difficulty trying to source black soft hackle in UK appreciate any advice where I could get some.

Thanks again.
Surprisingly scarce. There is one on eBay from Germany, if you search chickabou it will come up. The only place I know you can get a full range of colours is the feather emporium in US. They are much cheaper but there is the wait and the hassle of paying VAT and duty. Great for a big order though.
