The piece itself is done in pure white cotton and is pictured while laying on a black sheet. Nearly 282 yards of thread went in to making this piece and quite a few hours of time. Filet crochet is done by looking at a graph and counting, counting, counting stitches. It is fun to do but can get very intense sometimes. lol
I used DMC Cebelia crochet thread. It is the best thread you can buy and is definitely heirloom quality.
