Response from List Member:

>> Any handmade mould paper, whether it be 'laid' or 'wove' will NOT
have a
grain direction<<

My Response:

Thank you - I was becoming confused - smile.  I am a beginner at hand
made paper and I could not find a - grain - in my papers.  But I pour
not pull my paper, but  still the pulp swirls in the paper mold laying
the fibers in all directions just as it does in the vat when you dip
or pull a sheet.
