Last week I played with a skein of paper yarn I bought in Finland. Shiny! I loved the gold strand twined with white paper. I found some gold thread in my stash and wove a simple striped Christmas mat.
Paper thread is stiff. I learned the hard way that you don’t wind it on a spool, you put it on a boat shuttle. The resulting mat is stiff and transluscent.
I think it would have been prettier if it had been narrower and longer, but I used seine twine warp that happened to be on the loom. It received cat approval nonetheless.
