You have a murder of crows, sleuth of bears, even an exaltation of larks, what about Fairies?

the only other mythical creatures I've been able to find collective nouns for are Unicorns (a blessing), Sasquatch (a pod), Griffins (a pryde), and Dragons (a doom)
In a recent conversation with a friend, he mentioned that "Goldbond Medicated Powder is like a squadron of fairies blowing on my testicles."
clearly a squadron just feels wrong in this sentence (among so many other things that are wrong with this sentence...) so what would the right collective noun be for a pack of pixies?
