The finest White Paper Yarn available on a reclaimed vintage braider's bobbin adds instant flair to your studio and home.

* * * * *

Fine Paper Yarns are a very rare material nowadays even though they have had a long history in textiles production and other creative fields.

The Paper Yarn's diameter is only a fraction of an inch (0.01 in / 0,4mm) and there are countless possibilities to use it. Crocheting, knitting, scrapbooking, weaving, using it for decorations or elegant gift wrapping are just some of the ideas that come to mind. This delicate Paper Yarn is nevertheless quite sturdy. Thanks to its warm feeling and exquisite touch it's suitable for your most ambitious projects.

The yarn can also be dyed and colored easily - find the tutorial here: http://www.paperphine.com/?p=3236

This Paper Yarn is purely white (computer screens do not always show colors perfectly right, sorry).

Diameter of the Paper Yarn: about 0.01inch / 0,34mm

Quantity: about 1200 yards (1100m) or about 4.63 ounces (130g)

The reclaimed bobbins were used in weaving mills in Austria and the US for the manufacturing of fine silks. Each of them comes with its own history and is about 30-50 years old. The tops and bottoms of the bobbins have various colours (red/dark blue/green/black/brown-beige) and are all about the same size (4.9 in x 3 in (12,5cm x 7,5cm)) and each bobbin is carefully chosen.
