The Tudor Tailor is delighted to be able to offer a range of beautiful cotton lace from a traditional Nottingham lace factory. These designs are appropriate to the 16th and early 17th centuries - perfect for Tudor and Elizabethan costumes. This particular lace is ideal for edging ruffs, cuffs and bands. Available in ivory/cream, 1¼in (32mm) wide. You can also purchase it by the half yard if you'd rather have a different length.

The manufacturing process of this 100% cotton lace leaves it with a creamy colour. If a brighter, whiter shade is desired it is easily achieved by soaking the lace in hand hot water mixed with ordinary washing powder. Leave the lace to soak for half an hour before checking to see if it has lightened enough. If not, leave it to soak for longer.

Once the desired shade is achieved rinse the lace in clean water and gently squeeze out. Hang the lace up to dry, smoothing it out as much as possible, and allow to dry. Iron when slightly damp for a pristine finish.
