I put together a series of prints on Hawk Mountain Osprey Velvet Textured paper which was discontinued sometime ago.
I had several rolls but not much left.

Looking for suggestions to replace it.

I have never used it so I have no idea what would replace it. Was it cotton or alpha-cellulose? Bright or natural? What weight was it?

There are several 'velvet' papers around, most of them made by Somerset Mills in England. Moab has 225 g/m and 255 g/m Somerset Enhanced Velvet, Canon a 225 g/m Fine Art Enhance Velvet, Epson a 260 g/m Velvet Fine Art and a Somerset Velvet Fine Art Matte in 255 g/m and 505 g/m. There is also a Breathing Color Elegance Velvet that I have used when I need a really bright white, it is 310 g/m. There are also several other textured matt papers that don't have the velvet label.

Your best chance would be buying several sample packs, and picking out the closest match.

Could be that I have some old A4 sheets here that I could compare to the maybe 50 textured samples of other papers. Could be that I thrown them away some weeks ago when Hawk Mountain announced its closure. I did a search but they did not appear, sometimes I have to rely on the accidental find :-)

Never seen the Hawk Mountain Osprey Velvet Textured, so I have no idea where it falls -  but I just throw out that the Canson BFK Rives is a real favorite of mine when I want a slightly painterly texture, but not so much texture as, say, the HFA William Turner or Museum Etching. The BFK gamut is also pretty impressive.
