Mulberry Paper fibers lifting with ink

I'm when I peel my paper back from my lino the fibers of the paper lift with the ink. I'm using mulberry paper and caligo safe wash ink (white, if that matters). Anybody else run into this problem?

It's a pain because when I go to re-ink my plate the fibers lift onto my roller.

Re: Mulberry Paper fibers lifting with ink

have you tried applying a fine water mist to the paper? Not to saturate it but just to act as a release. You can spray the mist over the paper (not directly aimed at it) and let the fine water particles settle. Do this just before printing. Are you using a press or hand pressure?

Re: Mulberry Paper fibers lifting with ink

I often use various Japanese papers for my printing and they all have one side that is smoother and less fiber-y than the other. [It can be subtle]. That's the side I use: and I agree with bridog's suggestion about spraying.
