I believe when they say spring-roll wrappers they mean rice paper

@JM325: I think you're talking about egg rolls. Those are fried and use a different wrapper. These spring rolls are different. Yes they're eaten raw, but the wrappers should be warmed up by placing them in a dish of warm water (as said in the first paragraph).

Where are the cooking instructions? Most spring rolls are fried. Are these eaten with raw wrappers?
