What tracing paper for patterns

I have to say, I have searched and tried various papers but Swedish tracing paper wins.

81WsWrt2rfL._SL1500_Swedish Tracing Paper is a paper-like material that allows you to modify your expensive paper patterns without cutting into them. Making clothes for a friend or a growing child? Trace pattern pieces into multiple sizes!

A soft and translucent paper, resistant to tear but easy to see through, making it excellent for copying the detail from existing patterns.

  • Ideal for taking copies of delicate tissue paper patterns
  • copying a pattern to use in multiple sizes
  • making alterations to existing patterns
  • or making a pattern from a piece of clothing

I found one company where you can get it from in the UK, they provide very good service too. You can access their online shop here.
