    Ordered the carbon black piccola grenadine and English dot silk #2 today. I've got two grossa and one find, so I figured I'd go with something in the middle. My Hobers are dark navy and dark red grossa and dark purple/black fina and English stripe #33.

    Looking forward to my 5th and 6th Hobers.

    David, any plans for knit ties in the near future? For the life of me, I cannot find 3 inch wide, 60 inch long knit ties with pointed ends anywhere. I would pay a pretty penny for a navy and a black with these specifications.

    David responded to me in a private message (thanks!). Apparently, these elephants are extinct. [​IMG]

    Swiper, in the bottom pic, what is the tie on the left end? Burgundy fina?

    Nice collection! :)
