Sandi Woods – Author, Designer, Fine Artist & Lacemaker

“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.”

Helen M Stevens – International Textile Artist

“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.”

Ulrike Voelcker (Lohr) – Author, Designer & Lace Teacher

“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.”
