Lesur Empress Mercerised Crochet Cotton 

14 Colours Available.  Please note colour Cream oo is not currently available.

Go to: Empress Colour Chart,  and Empress Colour Groups  Please state colour/s required during checkout or by email.

Empress 100% mercerised Crochet Cotton by Lesur.  A  strong cotton with a lovely lustre, it has a smooth appearance and will give excellent stitch definition, perfect for delicate crochet work. Each ball is 365 meters (400yds) in length - approx 100g.

This is the cotton I use to make lace, recommended to me by a Master Craftsperson.  I use a  1.25 hook for most of my lace, sometimes using a smaller one on the start and finish rows, depending upon the design, finished size and ‘tightness’ required. Some of the porthole covers require a 1.75mm hook.

Price £3.50 per ball up to 5 balls,  discount for 6 balls or more, + £3.50 P&P from 2 to 5 balls.
