Once spun this fibre becomes linen. This bast fibre is a really natural way of working with plant fibres. The flax plant is retted to remove the outer soft fibres, then combed leaving behind the strong stringy material in the centre of the stems. Very few chemicals are involved in this process.
Commercially dyed in a stunning palette of colours to Okeo-Tex 100 standard. This environmental certification verifies the methods used are environmentally friendly, and the dyed used are safe for human health.
Slightly yellow toned brown.
Whether you're a spinner, felter, or mixed media artist you'll love working with this fibre.
