What English silk experts could do was to fashion the threads they bought on a much smaller piece of equipment called a narrow loom. With this they could twine lengths of braids, ribbons and cords for purses, girdles and trimmings. They also knew how to spin thread from raw silk, twist and plait the threads together, prepare gold and silver threads for the use of embroiderers, and make elaborate trimmings.
