The long line is from our 2017 flax harvest.
This fibre be been broken and scutched to separate and remove the woody shive from the linen fibres, then hackled by hand to remove any remaining shive, knots, and short line linen (tow). These fibres are great for hand spinners. Depending on the spinner, these fibres may require wrapping around a distaff. Our hackled linen fibres is available in 100-grams.

TapRoot Fibre Lab fibres have been grown and processed in Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia.Our flax straw was broken and scutched to separate and remove the woody shive from the linen fibres. Then hackled to remove any remaining shive, knots, and any short line linen (tow). The short fibres are process through the Bellfast Minimills Separator and then further processed to create roving in the Belfast Minimills Carder. We are eagerly awaiting the completion of our machines to further process the long line linen into spun yarn.
