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.

  • Looms have different hole configurations allowing different designs to be worked
  • The violet colour helps to avoid eye strain when working with white and other pale colours traditionally used in lace-making
  • Use anywhere - no need for pins or cushions, although they can be used if the maker prefers
  • Use these little looms to create little lace motifs – perfect for jewellery, buttons, embellishments and fillers.
