A scale's the only way to weigh. I use a digital food scale [measures up to 5 pounds] and a paper plate to give me a place to balance the fiber.

Amazon has a nice one (escali primo) that isn't too expensive.  I think it goes up to 10 pounds and you can use it for making soap too (if you are a hobby-acquiring maniac like some of us). And it comes in about a bazillion colors.

It is accurate to 5/100 of an ounce, it will also measure in grams, and of course it can be zeroed. 

This is just the amazon search for digital scales, but there should be lots of the Escali Primos right on the first page.

I hope this helps, good luck finding a scale you like!
