Here are some great resources to learn more about growing flax to spin linen.
A wonderful book you can grab over on etsy:
Like most of you, I love to garden.
Mix gardening and spinning together and you will have linen.
This one is for @melanie_smith_yarnsnthreads as we are both planning to grow flax this year.
Join us, it will be a fun event if you only do it for the flowers or seeds.
March: prep the planting area. This plant thrives on nitrogen’s.
April: cast your seeds
May: get that weeding done
June: water, water, water. Also is a water loving plant.
July: weed and water.
August: watch for the stems to start to brown. When about 2/3 up, pull out of the ground, do not cut.
September: dry the stalks, then continue the standard making of flax into linen.
