Well, if you want to call the paper you get from this half stuff 'flax paper'
- that's fine but it is an entirely different animal.  Technically. the
halfstuff  can be blended process but it then makes egg carton paper...to get
anything halfway decent, it still needs to be hollander beaten and it is
NOTHING like flax papers produced from line flax....it has been so
overprocessed to get it to the point that you can use it that it is more like
a soft cotton.
