Hi JS
Paul Marriners pamplet on UNI products - How to Choose & Use Fly-tying Thread goes into dubbing, loops and so on. It is a store house of info.
Not sure of the cost but it isn't much. see www.galesendpress.com
for more info.

Im pretty sure your reffering to the loop used in dubbing flies. All it is ,is a tied in loop of waxed(prefferable)thread in which you insert your dubbing and then by twisting the loop by means of a loop twister or just by your fingers . Then you can wrap up your body!
For me it definantly makes a more durable better looking fly especially if you tease or comb the dubbing, also by adding some cement along your fly hook first also helps securing the dubbing.
