Item description:

COLOURS
Please note that this is a copper wire, not silver or gold.
GOLD and PINK GOLD colours are achieved by coloured coating which simulates colors of precious metals. This finish, perhaps due to coating process, results in wire that feels and behaves as half-hard copper, and therefore is a little bit more stiffer and brittle than the other colours.
For real Gold Plated Copper Wire, see this listing:
https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/542059801/gold-plated-copper-wire-for-lacemaking

COPPER colour is the actual colour of the wire, coated with clear enamel to prevent tarnishing.
For Raw Copper Wire, seee this listing:
https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/528231592/raw-copper-wire-1-spool-size-024mm-gauge

SILVER colour is silver plated over copper. The silver layer will eventually tarnish.
For Non-Tarnish Silver Plated Copper Wire, see this listing:

If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I will be happy to share my experience working with all these wires.

Provided photographs are of actual items in stock. Due to differences in computer screen colour calibration, it is impossible to guarantee that wire colours will be exactly the same as you see them on your device. If you have specific colour requirements, feel free to contact me.
Please note that colours may differ slightly from batch to batch. If you require larger quantity of the same colour, purchase it all at once - the next lot might be a little bit different. I often have more wire in stock than listed in this shop, so if you need bigger quantity than shown, contact me with your request.

Enamelled copper colours are reasonably stable, unless they are exposed to extreme conditions, such as direct sunlight or heat.

MATERIAL
This wire is the best material I have found for bobbin lace making and I have used it exclusively for last 15 years. Colour coating is strong and durable. It doesn't chip off when wire is manipulated and it is not easily marked with metal tools, such as pins, hooks or pliers. Copper wire is soft and pliable to accommodate lace stitches well, yet it has enough resiliency to sustain firm tensioning. These qualities make lacemaking with this wire easier and more enjoyable, and bring better results. Therefore it is suitable for many lace types - plaited laces, ground-based laces, as well as free form designs.

It is also an excellent material for needle lace, knitting, crochet, tatting and weaving.

Available in 30+ colours in glossy, opaque or metal finish. Browse all colours in other listings to add to your palette.

SIZE
I find the wire size of 0.2mm in diameter (approx. 32 gauge) to be the most versatile for lacemaking. Wound as a single thread it produces very delicate lace that has enough self-support to be used in jewellery making. In double strand, this wire gives bold look to enlarged patterns suitable to be used in wall art and sculpture. Multiplied, it offers excellent pliability together with light-reflecting quality that yields the best results in gimpwork. Overall ease of work with this wire gauge makes it a favourite choice for beginners as well as experienced lacemakers and lace designers.

PACKAGING TYPE
Medium size spool with narrow core saves space by holding more wire.

PACKAGING SIZE
Amount of wire on this spool is sufficient for medium to large bobbin lace projects, as wall art and sculpture.

Delighted with all the items I purchased recently from Wire Lace Supplies. This Pink Gold wire is a beautiful shade and excellent quality. It will be used for fine crochet. Lenka was extremely helpful sorting out my order. It was dispatched promptly and the parcel carefully packaged. A positive shopping experience.
