Bleached Flax Top (Linen)
Natural bleached flax, also known in fibre form as linen, this fibre is super easy to spin, with a staple length at least 4 inches long. This is the perfect fibre for beginners as it's very forgiving. Linen has the advantage of ageing well, the more you wear and wash it, the softer it gets. After spinning, you may prefer to wash it several times before knitting since you can soften it up considerably that way, which makes it much less coarse, and improves the softness.
