Linen fabric is one of the oldest in the world. It is made from the stems of the flax plant and was a widely used and very important textile before cotton and other fibres. To produce linen fabric only the best fibres are used but other parts are not wasted. The left over parts – linseeds, oil, straw, lower-quality fibre are used in producing a wide range of products: from lino, soap, healthy oil to paper and even cattle feed.
We suggest you follow the care instructions specific to the yarn you are using and when in doubt hand wash in tepid water using a mild soap. Do not agitate or twist. Lay garment flat on a towel and roll it up like a sleeping bag. You can let that sit from 15 minutes to the following day to ensure the towel wicks out as much moisture as possible. Then unroll, place on a clean, dry towel, shape and dry flat.
