Not only is it cheaper there in AC Moore, you get a lot more per package. I have both the named stuff from fly tying shops such as Body Braid, Gudebrod, Orvis and something with no name from the now defunct American Angers in Salem, NH, I also have something from AC Moore called decorative trims from a company called Mangelsen's. I only have the latter in silver but have seen it in pearl and gold. It comes in a 5 1/2 yard spool and cost $1.19. The Gudebrod brand I mentioned is also very reasonably priced at $2.50 for a 10 yard spool (per Natick Outdoor) and for all I can tell, it's the same exact stuff as Bills Body Braid. So the AC Moore thing is actually the second best bargain of the ones I know of.
