Ole, got a Midori cotton paper.... It's in the mail... will let you know how it is
New 10:12
wow! very nice - congrats
New 10:13
funny to see that. I just came here to make a similar announcement. lol
New 10:16
a few minutes ago I ordered there Gnatural papers from them in 100 sheet boxes. 36gsm cotton, 60gsm cotton, and 100gsm wood.
New 10:17
the wood is laid pattern which is hard to get these days. Everything is wove.
New 10:19
Laid is traditional, and the most common, in hand made papers. You can't do the real thing on a fourdrinier, but it's possible on a rotary machine. Modern ones are just dandy roll, like watermarks.

Oh neat!

I'm looking forward to your review

The wood is "normal" paper isn't it?
New 10:53
lol yes wood is "normal"

By the way, you thought cotton was soft. Well you're right in common book papers for letter press. See this:

I have had sort of crisp paper made of cloth or cotton

I don't know if I can get my favorite paper anymore, but similar qualities are available

modern cotton paper is also mostly made of "linters" as opposed to "lint", which is rags. Linters are secondary and smaller fibers on the cotton seed.

hard to find these days, and I don't know who makes it
New 11:06
I shall have to test Crown Mill too
New 11:06
Rodia is a bit thin sometimes

I like wood pulp paper too though, some are better than others though

Thanks for the link!

arrow, I can see why you are attached to that paper mill. It's very old and a beautiful piece of history in your home town.

So the stopped production there in 1981, but as far as I can see the brand is now made in the Netherlands.
New 14:33
Norwegian Wikipedia says this: "Alvøens finpapir og «bøttepost 1797» leveres fortsatt til norske kunder. Fra 1981 av produseres spesialitetene etter avtale på en hollandsk papirfabrikk. "

I like the Midori Cotton paper. I use pads of it and the matching envelopes for letters. I wish they made A5 notebooks with it though

Thanks for letting me know
