April News

Greetings! It’s been a while. Hope you are well. 🙂

Today, Elishewa is in the paper studio making hemp paper for a super special project which will be revealed soon! This batch of paper will be made from beautiful, retted, organically grown hemp fibers from Eastern Kentucky. They came as whole hemp stalks and the fibers were separated from the hurd by hand. The fibers are very long and strong- It will be interesting to see how they do in the beater! They’re cooking right now as this is typed. After the fibers finish cooking, they will be rinsed well and beaten into a pulp in a hollander style beater machine.
