|Inishmacsaint Lace Definition: Definitions for the Clothing & fabric Industry
Inishmacsaint Lace is worked in fine linen thread. It is raised needlelace similar in method to the flat Youghal needlelace. The raised effect of Inishmacsaint is achieved by additional outlining sewn on to the lace after completion. The raised areas are usually around the outside of flowers and other important parts of the design. The outlining is known as the cordonnett which is a thickish cord that can be further elevated by couched padding oversewn with buttonhole stitching. The finished lace has a raised three-demensional appearance
