Calf and Goat Vellums

We are very pleased to announce that we will now be stocking Vellums from William Cowley Parchment Makers. Initially, we will be stocking three types:

Classic Calf Vellum - Creamy coloured, full grain Calfskin. Traditionally used for bookbinding and for covering furniture, etc., but can also be used for painting and calligraphy. Calligraphers will need to abrade the smooth surface before writing to form a good key.
Average Skin Size: 0.67 - 0.91 sq.m (7.25 - 9.75 sq.ft)
Approx. Cut Size: 70 x 60 cm
Average Standard Substance: 0.3 - 0.4 mm
Grades: Run Selection
Cost: £123.00 per skin

Creamy Goat Vellum - Is for covering panels and books. It is softer than Calf Vellum, with a cloudy creamy grain that varies in intensity across the surface. The backbone is usually visible as slightly darker line.
Average Skin Size: 0.55 - 1.00 sq.m. (6 - 10.75 sq.ft.)
Approx. Cut Size: 70 x 60 cm
Average Standard Substance: 0.3 - 0.4 mm
Grades: Run Selection
Cost: £94.00 per skin

Natural Goat Vellum - Is the same as above, but has an unbleached surface that gives a honey/light brown colouring and greater surface variation. The skins are more 'interesting' to look at, but each skin is more individual in appearance than the Creamy Goatskin Vellum.
Average Skin Size: 0.55 - 1.00 sq.m. (6 - 10.75 sq.ft.)
Approx. Cut Size: 70 x 60 cm
Average Standard Substance: 0.3 - 0.4 mm
Grades: Run Selection
Cost: £94.00 per skin
