Cotton Pulp for Paper

Today I began cutting up white cotton sheets and beating them in my Critter. I plan to cut up five sheets in all which is seven and a half pounds of dry fiber. After beating this into a pulp, I will experiment with dyeing them naturally. I plan to try goldenrod, culinary sage, carrot tops, tansy, the nuts of Pignut Hickory (a relative of the black walnut), marigolds and whatever else presents itself.
