If you don't have a beater and are tired of making blender paper from other
paper, Twinrocker sells buckets of pulp, hydrated or not, that is 100% rag
and other good fibers like flax. The difference in quality can be
astonishing. They have a website, sorry I don't have the URL, it was in that
incredible book arts site someone on this list gave us a while back.
Also, if you're interested in how paper gets made from wood pulp, contact
your forestry department or Weyhauser for a kit, I know they used to have
them. There was a jar of wood during each step of the processing process,
and a little mould and deckle, just the size of the top of a jar. It makes
little round pieces of brown paper bag. It smells saurkrautish.
