Hemp Hurds as Paper-Making Material Lyster Hoxie Dewey read online review & book description:
The woody inner portion of the hemp stalk, broken into pieces and separated from the fiber in the processes of breaking and scutching, is called hemp hurds. These hurds correspond to shives in flax but are much coarser and are usually softer in texture.
The hemp stalk grown in a broadcast crop for fiber production is from one eighth to three eighths of an inch in diameter and from 4 to 10 feet tall. The stalk is hollow with a cylindrical woody shell, thick near the base where the stalk is nearly solid and thinner above where the hollow is relatively wider.
