This linen tow yarn is produced in a completely artisanal way. The term "tow" refers to the shorter flax fibers that are left over from the heckling process. Yarns and fabrics made from tow fibers are usually thicker and more rustic in character.
This yarn has been bleached in the traditional way (with ash water) and therefore has a soft pearl tone.

It is a single ply yarn and each skein is about 50gr.

This linen thread is completely handmade from seed to thread. The flax is of the Galego variety, a regional Portuguese flax traditionally used in Portugal for the production of fiber and which is nowadays only found in rare locations. The production of fiber is completely traditional, and its processing is completely handmade, within the traditional techniques usually practiced in our country.
