Plant Fiber Name
Common Milkweed Seed
Plant Fiber Description
Very Smooth texture, ivory color. The milkweed seeds and fiber are processed together. Repeated rinsing removes the excess seeds as they sink to the bottom. Some seeds still have to be removed by hand. Will plug a blender if not cut into small pieces. One of the more time consuming papers to make, but one of my favorites.
