This is paper, but it's surprisingly strong. You can knit it and then wash it gently and it's beautiful. The rustling sound it makes is otherworldly. Weave it into your weft for crispness and space. Knit it together with something unexpected, like mohair or lumpy silk for something dazzling. It's a superb counterpoint to the soft, drapey silks. A little goes a long way. Although these skeins don't weigh much, there's lots of yardage.
