I think it might be what we call construction paper. Construction paper is widely used in the US for children's crafts. It's generally colored, and not at all light fast. It's heavier than text weight paper. It has a toothy, matte, surface. Does that sound like sugar paper?

This sounds most like it. In the UK, it's certainly a 'children' thing rather than a 'historic' one.

or is it sugarpaper...

Anyway, is it a material known in the USA? If not, how would one describe it to an international readership?
