Re: what is "sugar paper" ?



"Sugar paper. A common quality of wrapping paper, blue (formerly referred
to as 'sugar blues' and dyed with Logwood or purple ... Made principally
from waste paper, and used, as its name implies, for sugar bags."

There's more, in E.J. Labarre's _Dictionary and Encyclopedia of Paper and
Paper-Making_
