What is Thread Count?

In our descriptions we mention Thread Count.  Here is what that means. Weavers use a  thread count called 8, 10, 12 and 14 point quality. Point count only refers to the thread count per inch.  Therefor the thread count has nothing to do with the quality of the lace.  The bolder patterns use thicker threads and therefore have a lower thread count.  In comparison, The finer close knit patterns use thinner thread and are assigned the higher count thinner thread.   Nottingham Lace always uses a blend of 95% Cotton with 5% Polyester for stability.   Because of the way the lace is created Scottish lace window coverings and table linen are considered among finest in the world.  Polyester Lace Curtains are available from Heritage.
