Default Antelope Hair

Does anyone have advise or patterns for working with antelope hair?

I did a bit of research and found that antelope is the most buoyant type of deer hair. I hoped it would help my flies to float a bit longer; however, I find the stuff impossible to work with. It is extremely brittle. Does anyone have advise?

Thank you.

I recall this question many years ago. The answer was yes, it is buoyant, but very brittle. I have never used it for tying, but that was the answer I remembered

I've got some for spinning - brittle doesn't matter so much then.
