This listing is for one full 11 yard skein of beautiful Vintage handmade cotton Russian bobbin lace. The paper label is still present on the skein, though the writing is quite faded. The lace is in excellent condition. The color is antique white. In the spiriit of full disclosure, there may be some very slight yellowing on the outer fold at one end, but this is very slight and not noticable when the lace is laid out in one layer.
The width is 3/4".
Please convo me if you need more than one skein of this lovely lace, as I may have more in stock.
Very pretty lace, spiders are made in an unusual fashion. This a fairly typical old lace - a few inconsistencies where the pattern changes (mostly one extra or fewer twists), some greying - but it's a very pretty pattern, quite fine, and I look forward to replicating it.

This lace is much finer than I expected, much like Valenciennes lace in texture. That means I'm even more pleased. I think it might be linen rather than cotton, but if it is cotton, it is mercerized cotton. My only "complaint"? That now I'll have to buy fine handkerchief linen to use with it, rather than the coarser linen I already have. That's no complaint at all :-)
