This paper is made in a Fourdrinier Machine. The fibres used are from clothing industry offcuts, white tshirts and blue denim and flax and hemp straw from farmers. The grain directio is in the long side. Thickness varies according to type of paper from 15pt for the cream and 8pt for the linen wrapper.
All of the St Armand Papers are archival and acid free. The pulp is made using mostly clothing manufacturer's offcuts but also linen, flax, straw, jute and sisal. The pulp is internally sized so the paper will not act as a blotter.
All Saint -Armand papers have four deckle edges . The fibres are evenly distributed because each sheet is pulled with a mold one at a time and then air dried. There is no grain direction. The sheets can be folded without cracking and can hold deep embossing. For the same reason, after being soaked in water, the paper will return perfectly flat when pressed.
