Linen is an ancient, sustainable natural fibre spun from the flax plant. Flax itself if naturally resistant to pests and therefore practically no pesticides nor herbicides are necessary to grow these eco-friendly stem fibre plants. Flax plants produce large amounts of useable fibre per acre and do not require irrigation.
To create Studio Linen, industrial waste linen fibres are selected, undone and re-spun with 15% premium natural linen fibres to create a beautiful and unique recycled yarn. With a dry hand feel, cool drape and subtle sheen, a yarn that just gets better with wear and age. An ancient fibre recycled for a modern maker. The dyes used are free of animal derivates, so that this yarn can be called truely vegan.
