Re: P & O. using Morus silk 6b

So I probably made the mistake of choosing 6b and not 6a. Thanks for the feedback fellas.

Re: P & O. using Morus silk 6b

So correct me if I’m wrong guys but I thought I had read somewhere that Pearsalls 6b was the original color
thread for the P & O. Truth or myth ? Thanks.

Re: “Dr No”

Thanks guys for the positive reviews. It’s a dark,cold and rainy day here
and I’d rather be listening to a calypso band with Ursula somewhere else.
Happy Thanksgiving regardless.

Re: Morus

letumgo,

Hot orange and primrose. I have Pearsall’s but I wanted to check this out so
I could decided whether to recommend it to people who want to give the
classics a try. I think I would recommend it though I haven’t tied a lot with it
But the little I have I find it quite similar to Pearsall’s.

Morus silk thread

Got a few spools of Morus gossamer silk in the mail yesterday and tied up a few “Snipe & Purples” tonight. I was pleased with it.

Re: Ringneck Pheasant Skin

Wonderful bird that Ringneck and I might add that not as varied but some lovely feathers can be found on the hen. I just skinned and saltedmone last night. Beautiful feathers.
