Classic lace thread Egyptian cotton

Following an age-old tradition, lace threads are graded according to an English numbering system (NE), which correspond to the number of skeins measuring 840 yards (768.1 metres) per English pound (453.6 grammes). The lower the number, the thicker the thread and the higher the number, the finer the thread. This is a N° 24 thread (the thickest in the range), formed of three strands, thus it is referred to as 24/3.

For those who wish to calculate the English numbering (NE) into metric numbering (NM) to determine the number of metres of thread contained in a kilo of thread, the method is quite easy. Simply divide the English number by 0.5905.
