The flax plant is what creates fibres to make what is known in the UK and the western world as linen. Flax fabric consists of flax fibres which vary in length from 25mm to 100mm if which there are 2 main types of fibre.
The first fibre is shorter and is often used to create coarser fax fabric, with the second being a longer fibre which is used to create finer fax fabrics.
At Whaleys we stock 3 fax fabrics all of which are created from short fax fibres giving them a rough, coarse texture. To find out more about our Fax fabrics get in touch via our contact form.
