8 ORGANIC LINEN Thanks to the experience and the team work between farmers and scutchers, our organic flax is of a very high quality, with very interesting advantages: A special feature of the soil in the region is that it stores water in the clay stratum. Results show that organic flax copes better in dry periods than conventional, because it has very deep roots. For some crops, yields are lower than in conventional agriculture. For flax, they are practically identical. The delicate retting phase, the natural operation by which the fiber is detached from the stalk, is generally easier than in conventionally cultivated flax, because no chemical products have been used during growing. For spinning, we have developed a series of yarns from the finest to the coarsest in order to produce a wide range of fabrics. The raw fibers are spun at Hungarolen in Hungary, a GOTS certified spinning mill. Quality control shows that organic yarn is of excellent quality.
