A Death Hits Pearsall's

Thanks to Rachel I discovered that Pearsall's Silks is discontinuing their Filosell Silk Floss due to the death of their master dyer. It is very sad to lose not only the skilled, but their products.  If you love the Filosell six ply silk, Tristan Brooks has the remaining stock.

By the way, Rachel was working on an Or Nue' Hittite Amulet when she ran out of thread and found out about the death at Pearsall's.

  1. I find it a bit unsettling that no one mentioned their sadness at the death of the dyer.

  2. Some people don't like to talk about the death that hits them so hard. I hope that's the reason Pearsall's was silent.
