A good, sometimes better alternative to aero-linen is aeroplane
cotton. The colour is much lighter, natural off-white, takes toning
easily and appropriately for your album hinges it also has greater
fold endurance than aero-linen. Both cloths are produced by the same
company in Northern Ireland, Samuels and Sons, I'd have to dig out
their details if you need them.
