Flax top is a combed fiber preparation made from flax tow — the short fibers (2-4") that remain in the hackles after preparing the line. Flax top is easy to spin and does not require a distaff. Linen yarn spun from flax top is great to use as a weft in weaving or for knitting. The inherent luster of the linen yarn is due to the wax Content of the flax fibers. Euroflax flax top is available in natural and bleached white.
