For linen's sake

For linen's sake

Let's geek out for a minute about Linen! 

Linen is made from fibers of the flax plant. The same plant that gives us flax seed, flax oil, and violet or white flowers. If you plant flax in your yard it will grow to about 18" tall - in the Flanders region of Europe, the flax grows to over 4 feet. This is the only place in the world where flax grows this tall.

Tall flax is important because the fibers extent the entire length of the plant, and as in all textiles, longer fibers create better fabrics. Silk is the smoothest, and each silkworm cocoon is made of one continuous fiber. The best cotton in the world is from Egypt
