1. How long should one be retting flax fiber? In water
or in something else? Does anybody still add milk to
the retting vats as they did in medieval Europe?
- when I ret flax, I do it in a milk/water solution for 2 weeks ( and it
smells pretty bad!).

2. Can I make flax paper without a Hollander?
- with a stamper or a hollander - hand beating is really unrealistic

3. If yes to #2, where could I get flax fiber?
- Carriage House Papers 718-599-PULP
