Brenda Paternoster collects lacemaking threads all over the world and presents us here with a table for comparing thread thicknesses.

First she lists the threads according to the material (linen, cotton, silk, synthetics, etc.). Then she brings a table in which all (nearly 1900) threads are arranged in the order of their thickness. The book can help you to compare your favourite thread with that given for the lace pricking. Then you can tell whether you should perhaps reduce the size of the pricking or enlarge it.
