Our sisal fiber comes from Kenya. Botanically, the plant is Agave sisalina, and is considered to be a leaf fiber, just like abaca. We recommend cooking it in lye for 3 hours, and beating it in a Hollander beater for 1.5 hours. The resulting paper is lovely, yellowish and crisp.  


Sisal fiber has now been cut into 1/4 inch lengths. Simply soak in water overnight and then process in a beater.
