Sisal pulp is in sheet form and sold by the pound. Each sheet measures about 25" x 31" and weighs approximately 1 pound. However we may cut sheets to fit more easily into boxes. Sisal can be processed very easily in a kitchen blender or other form of mixer if a Hollander beater is unavailable.

Sisal is a leaf fiber-the fibers are 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. 

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 the unbleached abaca.
