Every Day an Experiment

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.
