With the scholar we've been working on in part 1 and part 2, our patron "M" asked for ALL the accurate visual details, including a ruff.
Now, I have never considered wearing one because my neck is short and, well, thick. However, I was excited to research and put theories to the test!
The supplies I would need are: linen fabric, spray starch, liquid starch, cotton lace, and a curling iron.
The instructions I was following said for storage to keep the starched ruff tied around your ironing stand, with the thread in place. Put the thread back in before washing your ruff to help with the re-starching and ironing process.
Anyway, here's a preview of me in the ruff along with the coif and hat, which will be the next post. You can tell how "thrilled" I am with ruffs in general, even if this one DID turn out really nice.
Twins each with half a brain in reality; the other half displayed here!
