Silkspan availability

I decided to open this thread because I have been informed that Silkspan tissue is no longer made. This is a terrible disaster. I suggest all fellow modellers to state here if there are any news about a company tackling once again the manufacture of this covering material. It would be nice to get all us gathered and perhaps a paper manufacturer can find a market for this material. I called K&S and the chap who answered me said that he was desperate receiving lots of calls for this material. He also told me that there is definitively a big market for this most traditional and excellent covering material. The late Ed Manulkin of Sterling Models once told me this paper was the same used for tea bags due to its inherent water resistance. So perhaps we must look this way.
