Re: Kimono/Pearsall coordinated numbers

Just an FYI.. I have been tying size #20 spiders with YLI silk, starling feather and Bailey's wax with no issues and body is not bulky at all.

Re: Hackle Folding Tool

They were Isabella-coloured from the beginning but now more of primrose in front and slightly brownish in backside. Cannot explain the reason for this ;) .

Re: Kimono/Pearsall coordinated numbers

Carl, thanks!

Some of the Kimono colors appear to be very close to YLI colors.

For example, Kimono #330 looks to be on my PC display an exact match to YLI #244.

Looking again, your Primrose #3 in your photo doesn't appear to look like my Gossamer Primrose spools.

Re: Hen cape - what color would call this?

Here is another I just received today. I bought it on eBay for $12.00 and it was called "Brown & Ginger hen cape".

Again, I would not have called this brown and ginger. Although it is a very nice hen cape, especially for $15.00 delivered.
