A classic every day yarn for the kitchen, household and garden. Our black and white flax yarn has a traditional look paired with modern utility.
Flax fibre is extracted from the linseed plant, and you likely know it as used in linen fabrics.
Flax is a sustainable fibre. To learn a bit more about it, read this excerpt from the V&A Museum:
When grown in its ideal geographical zone, the cultivation of flax produces no waste. All parts of the flax plant are used: the long and short fibres and seeds are made into textiles, paper, varnish, oil, animal fodder and bio-materials. After the plants have been pulled (harvested), the root remnants fertilise and clean the soil, thereby improving the productivity of soil for 6 to 7 years. Growing flax requires no irrigation, no fertilisers and no herbicides and pesticides, and therefore does not pollute rivers or groundwater. Flax even retains 3.7 tons of CO2 per hectare per year.
All the Redecker products we carry are plastic-free, and crafted only from natural materials.
