EMBROIDERY THREADS

For embroidery we offer our unique floss which is a continuous filament flat silk with a high luxurious lustre.  By using more than one strand in different shades in the needle it is very easy to blend or tone the colours.

The spun silks can also be used for embroidery where a soft, muted effect is required.

For miniature embroidery we would recommend using our fine twisted silks, 2/20 Twisted Silk and 4/20 Twisted Silk;  2/20 Twisted Silk can be used on 140 hpi silk gauze!

 
 

LACEMAKING THREADS (Bobbin Lace and Needle Lace)

All our silks can be used for bobbin lace.  The very fine twisted silks (2/20, 4/20 and 6/20) are perfect for Honiton designs and we have a wide range in-between suitable for many different types of lace together with beautiful silk gimps. The 80/3 Spun Silk and 90/3 Gloss Silk are also suitable for Needle Lace.

 
 

TEXTILE CONSERVATORS/RESTORERS

We supply silks to established textile conservators and restorers who mostly use the finer threads in their conservation and restoration work.  We are happy to offer a colour matching service at no extra charge.

 
 

SPLIT-CANE FISHING ROD BUILDERS/RESTORERS

Split-cane fishing rods provide another use for our Twisted Gloss Silks.  We have many rod builders who use our silks for whipping split-cane rods in traditional shades. The floss silks are also used to make flies for fly-fishing.  See the 90/2 Twisted Gloss Silk, 90/3 Twisted Gloss Silk, 4/20 Twisted Silk and Floss.

 

Our silks are beautiful to work with and they are not expensive or frail!  Our prices compete well with cottons and linens and our Honiton threads are much sought after for their fineness and strength.

 
Our Silk Thread Colours  
 

Our silks are available in an extensive range of colours throughout most of our sizes. Black and White are available in all sizes. 

We can provide a colour matching service but please remember to send a colour swatch to match to! Colour charts are available on-line. Have a look at our Silk Colour Charts

PRICES & THREAD COMPARISON CHARTS

To enable customers to find an equivalent silk thread to the cotton/linen threads referred to in their lace patterns our price list includes a Comparison Chart.  This is especially useful for customers new to silks who will easily be able to convert their lace patterns or designs from other threads to silk.

We have no minimum order.

NEVER SEND YOUR CREDIT CARD DETAILS BY EMAIL!

IF YOU WISH TO PAY BY CREDIT CARD PLEASE DO SO BY  ORDERING VIA OUR WEBSITE, BY TELEPHONE, OR BY POST, ONLY!

 

Over the last few months, weve had a number of experiences where people have offered to email us their credit card number.

 

Email is NOT secure. Never send any confidential information to Pipers Silks through email.

 

As a business owner, we risk being fined by credit card companies if we accept credit card information via email. It's a violation of our merchant agreement, so we just don't do it.

 

Use our website its safer:

Any time credit card numbers are transmitted over the Internet via our website, the connection is encrypted. That's what the little "lock" icon on the browser or the https:// is doing. It's encrypting the data, so the whole Internet can't eavesdrop on the transaction and steal the data.

 

The bottom line is whether you are business owner or consumer; it is NEVER okay to send credit card information via email.
