Since 1590, the Lana mill has been supplying European watercolorists with the finest papers. Lanaquarelle is made on a cylinder mould machine, giving it the look and feel of a handmade paper, but with better consistency.
Lanaquarelle is a bright white, 100% cotton, and acid-free paper. It is whiter than most standard watercolor papers and resists yellowing over time. Internally and externally sized, it is sensitive yet resilient. Extremely forgiving, it is ideal for wet-on-wet work or dry brush techniques and can handle repeated retouching. An anti-fungal treatment makes it mold resistant.
Lanaquarelle blocks are 100% cotton, neutral pH, 140 lb (300 gsm). The blocks consist of 20 sheets bound on 4 sides.
