Worsted Wool Lace

Worsted wool lace was called worsted ferret in the 18th century and was used for regimental lace, general clothing binding, petticoat and gown trims and hems, pocket book binding, tying women's cloaks, garters, bed hangings, slipcovers, Native American Indian garments, and trimming for hats. Because of the chevron design it works well when hand sewing and turning curves and corners. Wool binding is very durable for home furnishings or clothing. Sample swatches are available on request.

Worsted wool tape in narrower widths work very well for holding stockings up. In fact for women, leather buckled garters do not appear to be used in the 18th century. Cotton and silk are too slick whereas wool catches and holds. Approximately 1 1/2 to 2 yards allow you to rap the tape several times around the leg tie them as is seen in period prints.

Blue Worsted Tape

In 1785 the General Carleton, an English ship, sank off the coast of Poland. One blue wool (faded on the outside to brown in the sea water) double breasted sailor's jacket was excavated from the wreck between 1995 and 1996. This sailor's jacket had 1/4" blue wool binding enclosing all outside raw edges. Medium blue 80/3 linen thread will work well for hand sewing.

The 1/4" may be used for stay tape, stay lacing, tieing the back of breeches and for inserting in button shanks. Directions for securely sewing buttons into a garment using 1/4" linen tape are found in The Workman's Guide to Tailoring Stitches. Directions for securely sewing linen tape on to a garment are found in The Lady's Guide to Plain Sewing Book II.

Bobbin Lace

Bobbin lace is named for the many bobbins that are wound with the thread used in making this sort of lace. The thread braiding is supported by pins stuck into a pillow supporting the structure until friction makes a strong and intricate pattern. Because bobbin lace is made on a pillow it is sometimes called pillow lace.

Bobbin lace was put to endless uses from the trim on caps, aprons, shifts, neck cloths, handkerchiefs, and gowns to being applied to the front of waistcoats and on household linens.

Torchon Lace

Torchon is of Belgian origin by tradition and is now made all over the world as primary lace since it includes all of the structures of bobbin laces. Other named laces adopted specific structures as their trademarks. Built on a 45 degree angle, it is perfect for geometric designs. Totchon lace was inexpensive and strong. Our Torchon lace is hand made of white 120/2 linen thread by Kate Henry in the Illinois Territory and is reproduced from originals used during the early to late 18th century. This lace may be used as an edging or insertion. This would make a subtle but striking edging on a woman's cap, shift, gown or handkerchief. For example in The Pennsylvania Ledger in 1775 "Run away . . .  an Irish Servant Woman . . .  Had on and took with her . . .  a lace cap with a white ribbon round it" as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls.

Our Cluny lace is hand made of off white 80/2 linen thread by Kate Henry in the Illinois Territory and is a reproduction of a type used in the early to late 18th century. This would make a bold edging on a woman's cap, gown or handkerchief but was more common on houshold items such as table and bed linens. For example in The Proceedings of the Old Bailey, London in 1767 "Catharine Saunders and Mary Gibbons, spinsters, were indicted for stealing nine yards of linen lace, value 20 s. and ten yards of linen edging lace, value 8 s."

This grosgrain ribbon is made of cotton and rayon blend and is a good substitute for an authentic look when a natural fiber is required. Black grosgrain ribbon was used for both 18th and 19th century bonnets and to tie around the neck (especially of French women) often with a gold of silver heart or cross hung from the center. It may also be used to adorn women's chip (aka straw) hats, caps, and gowns. In The Pennsylvania Packet of 1775, "Ran away . . .  an indented servant Irish woman . . .  She had on a black pasteboard bonnet, trimmed with ribbon and lace".

The armband of women's shifts, especially in the first half of the 18th century, were sometimes tied with quarter inch silk ribbon in place of sleeve buttons. Necklaces of black silk ribbon with a cross below are often seen especially on French women and girls but ribbons were also simply tied around the neck or strung with beads or pearls. Quarter inch silk ribbon may also be used to decorate gowns. In The Proceedings of the Old Bailey, London of 1770 "Edward Holmes, Hannah Riddal, and Eliz. Soddi, spinsters, were indicted for making an assault on Elizabeth, wife of Michael Pever, in a certain field and open place, near the King's highway, putting her in corporal fear and danger of her life, and taking from her . . .  a silk ribbon, value 5 d." and later in the same proceeding "Soddi took my necklace and ribbon off."
