I thought I read somewhere about a year ago that Semperfli was copying Pearsall's colors. At that time, they had only a selct few colors in production, but now they have quite a few colors. They call it Nano Silk.

They also have a substitute yarn for Chadwicks 477. I just received two cards.

I think this is the Semper Fli silk product interesting product description stating they match E&L colors from an actual vintage copy. Chasin’ the Grail.

Marketing bullshit. It is simply impossible to match the colours of silk based on photograph of silks taken in 1915, and then reproduced on a pretty basic standard of paper.
