I had fun with this. I found the heavier threads to be the easiest to pack down for a dense weaving. I liked the green hairy one, rather than couch a single line of a hairy stitch ... you can get a wider band. The finer cotton threads were more difficult to get a good look. The silkier finer threads were a little easier. I liked the look of the open woven rope - longer one. The fuzzy beige one was a fuzzy velvety thread and might work for a caterpillar ... or something.
