Kevin,

Like others, I've been waiting to see these photos! I agree with your assessment; side-by-side they look interchangeable. Especially when you consider you're comparing new Morus silk to Pearsall's silk that could be 5 years old, but could also be 30 years old. Looking forward to seeing some flies for comparison.

Also hoping you can post a picture of all your other spools of Morus silks, even without the same colors from Pearsall's.

Found I had a Pearsall’s 5 lemon yellow so added that, a pic of all the comps, and a pic just of the Morus silks.

Looking for patterns for the antique orange (6C), ash (10) and sherry spinner (6B))
