Due to the current complexities with importing fibers and because of the worldwide coronavirus, what I have in stock here is all that I have to offer for the immediate future. (These fibers were imported prior to the pandemic and have been kept in a sealed environment.)

Please pay attention to the weight of the fiber you have chosen. Although most fibers shown are priced in 1.8oz/50g weight bundles, some are priced in different weights.

Note: Prices are subject to change without notice and as new stock is eventually purchased, the prices will undoubtably increase.

Flax (Long Line) top bundle (super fine, water-retted, unbleached) SH-7062 (3.5 oz/100 g)

$18.00




This fiber was grown and prepared in Belgium into a long line top form with staple lengths equal to the length of the flax plant. This is a very clean and fine flax for the most exquisite linen spinning. This preparation may be spun from your lap or a distaff and spins best wet. It arrives in a bundle that keeps the fiber in a neat, parallel configuration, ready for the best of spinning. The yarn becomes softer when successively washed or boiled in hot water. The fiber over-dyes, with fiber-reactive or natural dyes, to muted tones.
