Since I specialize in English saddlery, nearly everything I make is some shade of brown or black. Every now and then, however, I'm asked to create something a bit more colorful. Recently I found myself in need of some blue and pink lace, so I placed an order with Amazing Lace.This was my first experience with this company, but it won't be my last. The lace is very high quality and the colors are rich and extremely consistent.
Unfortunately, some of the lace is quite thick. These pictures show the pink lace both as it came off the spool and after preparation. As you can see, there's a pretty substantial difference. Still, the lace is nice enough that it's well worth the time and effort.
