This fabulous profile lace beautifully emulates Elizabethan needle lace, in the style that became known as Reticella. It would make an incredible ruff edging, and there is enough here to make a ruff and matching wrist ruffs. Price quoted is per yard - 36" (91cm) 4.5 yards remain - so if you buy all 4 you get a bonus half yard!
LACE DESIGN (5) ECRU SHADE
**I have been lucky enough to find a large lot of old lace. I am not certain of the age but I believe it dates from the early 20th century. It is machine made (NOT a chemical lace), but in some of the closest designs to 16th century lace I have seen. What makes the find particularly exciting is the long lengths, which mean it can be used for ruffs**
Dimensions: 1 1/8" deep. Price is for 1 yard but about 13 available in total.
Condition: excellent, unused.
I have this lace in an almost identical design in two different colours - this is a slightly darker shade, closer to 'ecru' although not hugely dark. The other is a little whiter. However, if you decided to whiten it, it bleaches really easy using Napisan or a similar product.
