This is tracing paper. Not just any tracing paper, but THE ONE. The so-called ‘Swedish Tracing Paper’ became famous in the English sewing show ‘The Great British Sewing Bee’. Strictly speaking, it is not Swedish either, but very English, as it is made in Great Britain.
But what’s so special about it? The product is partly made from the fibers of the abacá perennial, a relative from the banana plant. The plant is colloquially called textile banana.
In contrast to regular tracing paper, Swedish Tracing Paper is more tear-resistant and does not fray easily even after being folded several times. Of course it is still permeable, so that tracing is possible without any problems.
One roll is 100cm wide and 10 meters long.
