  • Description

Make lace in black and other dark colours more easily using these white lace looms.

Black lace always seems special - and using black or other dark threads to make Teneriffe Lace is no exception. Using a white loom to contrast with the darker thread makes the creation much easier. Includes new patterns for use on Looms #1 & #3

Teneriffe Lace is one of the simplest forms of needle lace. The main ways of connecting the threads is by a simple knot and then darning (needle weaving) to create solid areas. By making small, individual pieces of lace, that are later joined together if a larger piece is required, the work isn't as daunting as other forms of lace making!

In lace making, it is always spelt 'Teneriffe'. This is because the island of Tenerife used to have two f's in the spelling. That changed with time, but the lace did not.
