Winterwing Butterflies can be found flying in Hyrule Ridge and the Tabantha Frontier. In order to catch them, Link must be sneaking, or else they will fly away. Alternatively, they can be purchased from Beedle at the Gerudo Canyon Stable and Tabantha Bridge Stable. When combined with Monster Parts in a Cooking Pot, the resulting food will be a Chilly Elixir.[1] They can also be used at the Kochi Dye Shop as an ingredient to make Blue Dye.
