“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.
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.”
We have described how Floss Silk is a perfect embroidery thread, but it can also be used successfully in lace as Ulrike Voelcker (Lohr) says "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"
Silk Packs are available online for Ulrike Voelcker’s (Lohr) Butterfly & Moth Designs and Stil-Bluten Flower Designs
