    20200707_101052_resized.jpg 20200707_103850_resized.jpg Hi everyone, just thought of sharing this amazing thread..
    https://www.walmart.com/ip/Coats-Clark-Nylon-Monofilament-Clear-Transparent-Thread-300-Yd/19238120
    clear and fine monofilament which I use to repair pieces. While pulling tape from one of my units poly side, I tore my hair piece...(if this ever hapend to you, you know the feeling)...as there was still some longevity to the piece, I decided to sew it using this thread,..easy and not expensive solution !
    Thread is as fine as the hair

    sure, will post pic at next maintnenace. yes , can be used on any lace base and given it is transparent, on any color. not sure about skin base, but I assume you could repair tears, depending on lenght, location, and your sewing skills

    Wait, what type of unit is this, lace or mono?

    I looked up @BaldBearded's Guttermann recommendation.

    Which should I order for lace?
