Just to add to the handmade paper conversation...you can use "handiwipes"
instead of a wool blanking for "couching". They work fine. One project I
have done is handmade paper books.
San D

stonehenge is cheaper than bfk and works as well

if you dont care about acidity or archival qualities, then blotting
paper works, pre damping the paper helps

otherwise try making your own sheets of recycled paper from office
waste, all you need is a blender, some fly screen and an emboridery
hoop for the mould and lots of water

oh and an old woolen blanket for couching and drying the sheets
