Default Right wing or left wing feathers?

I want to start fletching some of my own arrows and I have a question about feathers.
If I am going to use a right helical, does it matter if you use a right or left wing feather?
Is one for for right helical and one for left helical?

If you are using a right helical jig, then you have to use a right helical feather. I think that's what you are asking.
