Sheep poo paper

Creative Paper, the only craft paper mill in Wales, are makers of beautiful handcrafted papers and paper products including their remarkable Sheep Poo Paper. They claim to take great care to collect super-fresh sheep poo from the beautiful (ugly won’t do) hills of rural Wales and take it back to their mill in southern Snowdonia.

The paper is then sterilised and washed repeatedly until it has lost approximately half its original weight (Sheep Fact: a sheep only digests 50% of the cellulose fibers it eats). The fibres are then used to make paper. For how its made see here.
