West Virginia hemp paper

In summer 2016, while driving to Maryland from Kentucky, I stopped in Parkersburg, WV to visit Morgan Leach, founder of the West Virginia Hemp Farmers Co-operative. Check out the post on Fiber Farming in Appalachia for photos. I recently made paper with the stalks, which were unretted and green when I got them and processed differently than hemp that’s been decortcated and retted. The paper came out beautiful – can’t wait for more fiber to play with! Here are some photos:
