A lovely surprise

Just before Christmas, Selvedge magazine held a holiday giveaway and I won one of the prizes, a box full of goodies from Paperphine.

 And when the parcel arrived it was so exciting unwrapping everything. 
Colourful paper twines.
 And a necklace made of fine paper yarn. There is a ring as well but I haven't got a photo of it yet.
 More paper twine on vintage wooden bobbins, once used in silk weaving mills.
 And yet more. The white yarn is "Fine Paper Yarn"with a diameter of only a fraction of an inch (0.01 in / 0,4mm).

 Twisted paper twine on a wooden spindle from an old Austrian weaving mill.

What a great gift to finish the year with.
