Parchment is a thin material made from the skins of calves, goats or sheep. Its most common use is in the pages of books and manuscripts. The finer qualities of parchment are called vellum. For those who do not wish to use these materials, we also offer a variety of Parchment style papers and cards that are animal friendly. All of our papers and cards are ideal for use in calligraphy, Talisman seals and recording spells and magickal notes.
