Pipers Floss Silk is a flat, high gloss yarn made from continuous filament silk and has the most luxurious lustre. It is available in two lengths, 80m and 150m.
Continuous filament yarn is thread which is reeled off the silk cocoons and wound into skeins/hanks. Over 1,000 metres can be reeled off just one cocoon.
Pipers Floss Silk is the perfect silk embroidery yarn as it is very easy to blend and tone colours by using more than one strand in the needle.
Fishermen use floss silk from our wide colour range to make flies for fly-fishing.
Lace designers love our floss silk as illustrated by Ulrike Voelcker (Lohr) in her beautiful butterfly, moth and flower lace patterns.
The Floss Silk colour range is vibrant and extensive which enables textile artists to blend and shade in the way a painter would on canvas. If necessary we can provide a colour matching service for those special projects.
