I have never ordered their silk, pitty the site seems to be a bit chaotic. They do seem to have more colours available then DeVere Yarns however, whih is nice :-)

Thanks so much for the addy.

I'm going to order a yarn+color card, so we'll find out soon. I really hope they have silk gimp that can be used for tassels :-)

Hi Machteld :-)

I'm thinking about making some tassels with turks head knots to hang from my Historical Sampler.

I can't make the gimp for the Turk's Heads myself (stupid chronic pain doesn't allow for repetitive movement).

The link in your post doesn't work, but I went to the general Pipers Silk site, and found the gimp at http://www.pipers-silks.com/ProductInformation/TwistedGlossSilkGimps.htm

Did you find it to be successful in making the knots?

Much appreciated!
