Mantilla
#1
I'm looking at buying a chapel veil for a friend whom I am introducing to a more traditional style of Catholicism (she's a good Catholic you understand, does Daily Mass, kneels and receives on the tongue, etc.) and want to buy her a mantilla.

What sort of size should I be looking for. Plus can anyone link me to any good UK sites where one could be bought?

I was looking at this: http://www.cenacle.co.uk/products.asp?recnumber=2870

Any good? Too small perhaps? Any advice welcome!

You should ask FE member Jacafamala, I think she's our resident Mantilla expert.

What material are these mantillas (for instance, at the rosamystica website) made of? It says "stretch lace" and that suggests that it's synthetic material. The (relatively low) price suggests it as well...

My wife complains that the mantilla she's got is too hot. It's obviously a synthetic one.

Does anybody know of a website where real lace (cotton, silk) mantillas are sold?
