I'm relatively new to the world of textiles and I've been hearing a lot about lace fiber recently. I've done some research but I'm still a bit confused about what exactly it is.
From what I understand, lace fiber is a type of thread or yarn that is used specifically to create lace fabric. But I'm not sure what makes it different from other types of fibers, or what properties it has that make it suitable for making lace.
I'm also curious about the different types of lace fiber that are available - I've heard of things like cotton lace, silk lace, and even metallic lace, but I'm not sure how they differ from each other or which one is best for specific applications.
Can anyone shed some light on this topic for me? I'd really appreciate any insights you can offer. Thanks in advance!
