Kenaf pulp is in sheet form and sold by the pound. Each sheet measures 23.5" x 31.5" and weighs approximately 1.4 pounds. However we may cut sheets to fit more easily into boxes. Kenaf pulp can be processed very easily in a kitchen blender or other form of mixer if a Hollander beater is unavailable.
We are excited that this pulp is back in stock. The kenaf plant, botanically known as Hibiscus cannabinus L., is related to cotton. It yields two distinct types of fiber for papermaking; Long bast fibers come from the bark, and short fat woody fibers come from the core. The combination of these long and short fibers give the finished paper a strong yet soft feel, similar to that of paper made from combining abaca and cotton. Our kenaf fiber was grown in Bangladesh and processed into pulp in the Philippines.
