Baltic Linen Fabric by the Half Yard
This luscious fabric from our friends at Son de Flor is 64” in width. When selecting quantity, choose "1" for half a yard, "2" for a total of 1 yard, "3" for 1.5 yards, etc.. Fabric will be cut once at the total cumulative requested length.
Linen is a sustainable fabric made from flax fibers. The flax plant has been cultivated in just about every country in the world and has been used to make fiber for over 6,000 years. To extract the fibers, the plants are either cut or pulled by hand from the ground (it's said that pulling creates finer linen). The seeds are then removed through a process called winnowing or ripping, followed by retting which removes the plant stock from the fibers. Once the fibers are separated to collect the longest pieces, which can be up to 20 centimeters long, they are then spun into yarn and eventually woven into fabric.
