Euroflax - The Finest Linen on the Market!
Euroflax is a long line linen yarn made out of flax-fiber grown in the damp ocean climate and rich soil of Belgium. The fiber is called 'long line' because the plant, growing more than 3 feet tall, produces long fibers that are preserved in the yarn by the unsurpassed skill and capabilities of a Belgium mill that has been in operation for generations.
The term wet-spun refers to the process of using heat, humidity and water during the spinning process to produce a smooth yarn. The yarn is then double-boiled and steam-processed to produce the look and feel we've know and loved as Euroflax for over 20 years.
It's slightly rustic, earthy, cool to the touch and fabrics knitted, crocheted and woven in Euroflax are not only beautiful, but are extremely durable.
Linen absorbs color beautifully. It’s durable, absorbent and non-allergenic. Linen can absorb 20% of its weight in water without feeling damp and the pectins in the fiber give it a heat-regulating quality.
Euroflax is available in two weights:
Sport/Fine (#2) and Lace (#0) in over 30 colors!
Euroflax carries the masters of linen certification, so you know it's produced in a socially and environmentally sustainable manner. There is no irrigation, no GMO, no waste and the fiber extraction (scutching) is 100% mechanical.
