This is a new pure silk tying thread, similar to Gossamer in strength and in thickness but with 100 meters per spool. It’s called Ephemera and distributed under the label 54 Dean Street owned and operated by grand master, Alberto Calzolari, a good friend and certainly on of, if not the best fly dresser I know.
For those of you not familiar with 54 Dean Street, it is the address of William Blacker’s fly shop in Soho, London during the mid 19th century. Alberto is the main tyer in the recent in the recently released wonderful 3 book set titled “William Blacker” Blacker, Ephemera & Bell’s Life. This thread is currently available in the 14 color set. We will be offering the floss soon.
