Details

Sisal pulp is in sheet form and sold by the pound. Each sheet measures 27.5" x 29.75" and weighs approximately 1.15 pounds. Sisal can be processed very easily in a kitchen blender or other form of mixer if a Hollander beater is unavailable.

We are excited about this new pulp that is available from us for the first time as of January 2016. Sisal is a leaf fiber-the fibers is obtained from the leaves of the sisal plant, botanically known as Agave sisalina. The fiber in the sword shaped leaves is removed in a process called decortication. Our sisal fiber is from Kenya; but it is made into pulp in the Philippines.

We have made exquisite paper from this pulp. It has a similar crispness in feel to the unbleached abaca.  Sisal paper is somewhat translucent after only 1 hour in the beater and a little lighter in color than abaca.
