Fiber Flax Seed For Linen Thread

For 2023 we offer ONE variety, untreated only

"Nathalie" Fiber Flax seed - commercially grown seed from Holland. 3 ft. tall. This seed will do well in areas where the planting weather is normal to dry - can also be planted in wet ground, but does risk rotting before germination. This year our supplier has indicated that due to a poor seed harvest in 2021, only untreated seed is available - so it will have to make do for this season. If you live in a wet area, do pay attention to the 10 day weather forecast when planting to avoid especially rainy weather.

Process as written in historical references (See Flaxcam section of this Web Site)

Instructions included for first time buyers.

Do note:

Flax is incompatible with itself for about 5 years on a plot of ground. This is not nutrient depletion but a real incompatibility. If you have limited garden space, we recommend planting enough to last for a few years instead of a tiny plot. Harvested and dried with the seeds removed, flax straw will store for a long time. If retted, the dry, retted straw will still work up into nice yarn decades later. Do store dry and away from mice.
