Nettle Papers

Making handmade paper using nettle stems.......a very tough fibre that needs to be added to abaca with some gampi to create a usable sheet. Without these added fibres the results would be too brittle and harsh to be used as paper.
The cooking and processed nettle stems....

freshly found and trimmed

cooked and ready to remove unwanted
slimy green stuff

ready to add to abaca and gampi
