Flax / Linen

Flax is a natural plant fibre, extracted from the bast beneath the surface of the stem of the flowering flax plant. It has a natural sheen and is long, strong and golden brown in colour. Flax is the most coarse fibre I stock and has a similar feel to jute or twine. Textiles made from flax are called linen so I've given the name here flax/linen as most people know would know it as linen.
