Pictures from SilkBasedClosures dot COM

These are also good pictures to show to a vendor as to how the density on the silk SHOULD be. (Depending on your taste)

Superb....Now all we need to figure out is a better way to hide the line of demarcation. Some ladies cut the lace all the way off but im still trying to figure out the transition from the silk top to your skin, it will still be noticeable right?

Here's one from ChicFrenchy - the pics are gone, but she did provide specs for her particular vendor.  YMMV for density specs depending on your vendor.

If the lace and silk are an exact match (or very close to it), plus, if you have a few more hairs ventilated into that area where the silk meets the lace, you should be good to go.

ThanKs for this post. Just today I was trying to decide whether my next unit will be a silk top. I am new to lace wigs and trying to absorb as much information as possible so that I can make the best decision for me. I currently own 4 units and will likely buy 2 or 3 more with those next orders I am truly debating whether any of them will be silk tops. I've got some reading to do and thanks to you I've a good starting point.
