4 oz Natural Flax/Linen Top
Natural flax is a plant fiber. It has a natural sheen and is long, strong and golden in color.
Flax or Linen is considered by many to be the oldest fiber used in the Western world, with fabrics having been found dating back to 10,000 BC. It is a fiber whose production was centered round Europe since about 500 AD, Irish linen being one of the earliest productions. Therefore the machinery, most suitable for processing flax, was developed in Europe.
Today Russia produces most of the flax for fiber. Other producers include Belgium, Ireland and other nations of Eastern Europe.
