Thank you and Coronavirus
Chloe and myself would like to thank all our customers who sent us messages of sympathy following the death of Chloe’s Dad and my Husband. You really are a kind bunch out there and we appreciate every single word of encouragement during these trying times for our family.
We would also like to assure our customers that we are very much open for business and that we will deliver our silks to you via the usual way through Royal Mail both within the UK and International.
It is important that we all continue with our hobbies and textiles even it is only for personal relaxation and to take our minds off the Coronavirus crisis. So, if you need any help in choosing which silks to purchase please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our utmost to suggest the correct silks for the job.
We are also adhering strictly to the Government’s advice on hand washing and disinfecting both at home and in our workshop – we hope you are too!
We will both be out there Thursday evening at 8pm clapping our support for our great NHS.
Keep yourselves safe!

“Since 1995 I have used Piper’s Silks 80/3 spun silks and 90/3 gloss silks and been particularly satisfied with the quality, strength and extensive colour range of the threads.
The service and advice I have received has always been exemplary, both friendly and helpful to me and my students, with knowledge that is second to none.
In a word, I would sum up Piper’s Silks as being excellent.”
“I have been using Piper’s silks for over 25 years – in fact it is safe to say that without them, I would not have the career which I do today!
Embroideries which I worked almost three decades ago are as vibrant and colourful now as they were when first stitched!
Their shades, textures and ease of use continue to be an inspiration and joy.”
“For many years I have worked with Pipers Silks. They have many different qualities that can be used for many different laces. I especially like the 4/20 for Chantilly and prefer the spun silks for the gimp.
The Floss is my favourite for Flanders and all the other Flemish laces like Mechlin and Parise because it fills the clothwork so nicely. The huge range of colours also helps to bring Polychrome Blonde alive.
Also, for Rib and Roll, my project for 2010, I use 6/20 Fine Twisted Silk and 90/2 Twisted Gloss Silk because these threads are incredibly reliable in durability, they rarely break, whatever we do to them while making our sewings.”
