These ultra sheer sheets are absolutely beautiful. Made from spun rayon, they have the look of very thin unryu tissue paper- but they are much stronger and more durable. In fact, they are stronger than you would expect with such a sheer and translucent sheet! There are tiny flecks of gold and silver leaf sprinkled throughout each sheet. An incredible paper for overlays. Also great for scrapbooking, bookmaking, collage, card making, paper sculpture, and window treatments.
