Are you sure you can't reset the ferrule in the holder, Linda?  If it still paints well for you, it might be worth trying to reattach by using an epoxy or a gel-type superglue and crimping the ferrule gently around the perimeter if it still misbehaves...

Just a thought,

No idea what brand it is, long worn off. One of the first two brushes I ever owned. They made me buy good brushes to begin with.
