        I am having difficulty sourcing the exact linen required for projects 2 and 5 in UK.  I haven’t used linen very often so have no experience in substitution. I can find linen lace yarn at 60/2 which is presumably slightly finer . I’m not even considering colours. There’s also a 12/2 .This maybe ok for no 5? Can anyone living in UK help with this ? Where has your linen come from? I’d be grateful for any help. Many thanks.

          As I live in Germany I also had problems to find something similar.

          In UK you could go to handweavers.co.uk. and search for linen 24lea.

            Thanks for your suggestion Ursula but I’ve already been there. Actually found Bockens 35/2 on a lacemaking site so I shall go for that. Good luck with your searching.
