Cornish Pisky Pals® Spring News
Cornish Pisky Pals®  is a small business, run by two sisters, Caroline and Angela. We are based in Coverack, on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall and produce a range of Pisky gifts, including our Cornish Pisky Pals®  which are individually hand made to CE standards. Wherever possible we use local businesses and source our products from Cornwall, making our business   ‘As Cornish as can be!’ (or ‘Mar Gernewek dell yllir!’ if you would prefer it in Cornish.) Cornish Pisky Pals®  are part of the ‘Made In Cornwall’ scheme.
Visit our website: www.cornishpisky.co.uk like us on Facebook and Instagram and meet us at  Pisky H.Q. or Pisky Trails.

Launch of our new website!
We’ve been working hard on a new website that shows off our complete range of Pisky products and is a more responsive site. We are making sure that we include all the little extra details about your Cornish Pisky Pal. The information about the piskies and the site will be regularly updated.

If you are looking for an unusual, ‘proper Cornish’ present, don’t forget Cornish Pisky Pals. Have a look at our website for our range of very Cornish gifts! Cornish Pisky Pals are perfect for posting. www.cornishpisky.co.uk

New Cornish Pisky Pals: There are a number of additions to the Cornish Pisky Pal family this year. Firstly, the reintroduction of Gabbro, originally one of our early pisky pals, named after the very strong rock that is found here at Coverack. We stopped making Gabbro because we couldn’t buy more of the felt that matched our CE standards (All fabric that we use to make our piskies goes through rigorous tests including those to make sure it doesn’t contain harmful dyes.) The lovely royal blue and bright orange that make up Gabbro’s outfit are now back in stock so Gabbro has joined us again! 
For a while now we have planned these next two little piskies and they fit in perfectly with our new rock group! New Cornish Pisky Pals, Serp ‘n Tine are dressed in the reds and greens of the locally found Serpentine rock! We hope you like them!
