2 acrylic lace looms to create lengths of lace with a small scallop on one edge, and to create matching corners on longer lace borders, in 5 depths (widths)
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.
Loom #19 contains two looms - one for a straight length and the other a matching corner piece. The looms can be used to create long lengths of straight edged lace - adding corners if required so that cloth edgings are neat. Advanced lace makers can also use the looms for other forms of needle lace.
The looms have been designed with bobbins that lengths of lace can be wound around to keep the lace neat and tidy while working.
- The violet colour helps to avoid eye strain when working with white and other pale colours traditionally used in lace-making
- Bobbins for winding longer lengths
- Use anywhere - no need for pins or cushions, although they can be used if the maker prefers
