Is this a lace curtain? It's not. It's hail. It's on a glass roof after a hail storm. Lace is very beautiful. There are several ways to make it. You can use one thread with a needle, hook or shuttle. That is called needle lace. The thread could be wool, cotton, linen or silk (real or synthetic). It can be fine or chunky. Lace can be used for decorating clothes or household goods. Pillow lace is more convoluted to make. It needs many threads wound round bobbins. Another name is bobbin lace or bone lace (because early bobbins were made of bones or ivory). Some were made in Cornwall.
