Great news, Somerset® Black is back! 

After an absence of nearly five years, Somerset® Velvet Black is being relaunched. Made with improved black pigments, Somerset Black has a deep warm shade combined with a soft velvet surface. The internal structure of the sheet exhibits even darker fibres, which gives dramatic results, especially when laser etched. It's made to archival standards from 100% cotton, and is fade resistant to the Blue Wool scale 6+. 

**Currently available in loose sheets. Weight 280gsm, Sizes 76x112cm (4 deckle edges) and 76x56cm (3 deckle edges.)

  1. This looks divine - I am sure I can think of something dramatic to paint or draw on this. Thanks for posting. Alison
