The Linen Chronicle

The Linen Chronicle

Linen is a textile made from the fibers of the flax plant. Linen textiles are one of the oldest textiles in the world. They are cool to touch, smooth and get softer with repeated washing. The fibers do not stretch because of their low elasticity.

Quality is very important in linen production. The longest possible fibers are obtained when the flax is either hand-harvested by pulling up the entire plant or when stalks are cut very close to the root. Seeds are then removed from the plant and fibers are loosened from the stalk. Woody portion of the stalks is removed by crushing between two metal rollers which separate fibers. They are then separated between themselves – longer from shorter. Longer, softer ones are then spun into yarns and then woven or knit into linen textiles. Which later have a number of uses. Linen is commonly used for Clothing, furnishing and home décor.

Linen has been adorned by many over the years across the globe by all races and creeds. The once gone vogue has revoked again and been worn by many.
