Z-Yarn is similar to Betts Standard Z-Lon from Metz, but with a little more crinkle in the fibers, less sheen and much less expensive. It is great for spinner wings, sparkle dun shucks, caddis emerger cases and tails.

Not as good as Z-Lon yarn, but adequate substitute for fraction of the price. Comes in small package, would have liked a little more of it though, and a wider color selection.

I would recomend

Reviewer: A viewer from La Crosse, WI US

great when you need something with a little shimmer! I use this for tails on sparkle duns for the most part.

Overall, I am very happy with this product and other products from Montana Fly Company. Just wish there was more of it in a package. White Z-Yarn can be used for various types of flies and different parts of flies including tails, wings, parachutes, etc.

Difference between Z-Yarn and Z-Lon

Reviewer: A viewer from Glendale, AZ US

Both the Z-lon and Z-Yarn maintain their krinkle when wet.
Z-Yarn is more krinkly, thus fuller. I have used for large wings with wing burner, and they work better than Z-lon because they are fuller.
Translucency is similar.

You get what you pay for

Reviewer: A viewer from Huntington, WV US

I'm not saying that this isn't a good product or that it doesn't have quite a few uses but if you are buying this a a substitute for Z-Lon you are making a mistake. However for the price this can't be beat and instead of looking at this product as a Z-Lon replacement look at it as a unique and useful product.
