PLEASE NOTE, this lace is normally sold by the half-yard (see below). However, this discounted listing is for 4 yards or 6 yards of Schole-House lace, which is enough to make a ruff suitable to the late 16th or early 17th century. 4 yards of lace is suitable for a ruff 3 inches (7.5cm) deep, 6 yards of lace is suitable for a ruff 5 inches (12.5cm) deep. 

The Tudor Tailor is delighted to be able to offer a range of beautiful cotton lace from a traditional Nottingham lace factory. The stunning 'Schole House' lace has been specially commissioned. The design is copied from one contained in 'A Schole-House for the Needle', first published by Richard Shorleyker in 1624, and is suitable for the late 16th century through to the mid-17th century - perfect for Elizabethan costumes. Available in ivory, 1¾in (45mm) wide.

This design was inspired by the book A Schole-House for the Needle which can be found here.
