About Flax plant

The flax yarn is spun from the long and short fibers that grow around the stem of the flax plant. Flax plant strives in cool and humid climate. The largest producers of the flax plant are Kazakhstan, Canada, Russia, and China.

The fibers are separated from the plant's stem through a process called retting. It then goes through several stages of preparation and dressing before it can be spun to produce yarn.

The fine flax yarn is usually referred to as "linen". It is used in all kinds of textile products ranging from rugs and curtains to luxury clothing. It can also be used in luxury sheets and bedding production.The thicker yarn, which is usually called twine, can be used in the meat industry, upholstery industry, produce farms, packing, and more.
