Description »

Flax, botanically known as Linum Usitatissimum, grows to a height of 3 to 4 feet, and has slender stems with narrow leaves. The stalks are retted, and then subjected to the process of breaking and scutching to release the bast fiber. This fiber is then processed in the pulp mill in Spain where it is partially beaten, bleached, and pressed into sheets called half stuff. 

Bleached flax is in sheet form and sold by the pound. Each sheet measures about 25" x 31" and weighs about 1 lb. However we may cut sheets to fit more easily into boxes.
