Default WOrking with Marabou?

Can anyone tell me where to find a tutorial on how to work with Marabou? And does anyone know how to work marabou into a loopy type bow? The style where you pull the loops out ? Thank you!

I usually tie and glue a piece of marabou into a circle (so that the strings aren't sticking out). Then you can wrap it into the loopy bow or glue a small circle of the marabou to one of the loops itself.

Marabou is not my favorite, though. Gets all over the place, including in my nose! LOL.

Oh def' I hear you on it being all over the place! I just thought there was a magical way to stop it from doing that as so many use it these days! So it's not too difficult to stick it here n there I suppose? In a loopy type bow? Do you know which kind of marabou is that long stringy type, that doesn't look as bushy as the regular marabou, but is more on the stringy long look? I've seen at the craft store how they sell this type of clip by itself with this type of marabou, but not where you can purchase a bulk to add to bows?

The stringy stuff is the ostrich feather fringe (not necessarily real ostrich feather). Are you talking about this:

No easy way around it.

Yes they look similar to this. THey are at hobby lobby here for like 1.99. I have a friend who says she buys the clip and sticks that into the bow, but just wasn't sure if this was sold somewhere else to use by the bulk ? Thank you
