How Linen is Made

How Rayon Fabric Linen is Made

Flax is an annual plant, which means it only lives for one growing season.

From seed-planting, it is ready to be harvested in about a hundred days.

Technically, linen is a vegetable. Linen fabric is made from the cellulose fibers that grow inside of the stalks of the flax plant, or Linum usitatissimum, one of the oldest cultivated plants in human history.

Unless the weather is particularly warm and dry, flax requires little watering or attention during this time.

It grows to about three or four feet tall, with glossy bluish-green leaves and pale blue flowers, though on rare occasions, the flowers bloom red.

Flax is cultivated around the world not only for its fine, strong fibers, but also for its seeds, which are rich in nutrients such as dietary fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.

Flax oil is also a popular drying oil amongst Suede Fabric oil painters.
