Nathalie flax (Linum usitatissimum)

Before the introduction of cotton and synthetic fibers, flax held a significant place in the households of yesteryear Quebec. It was used everywhere, from bed linens to socks! And even before that, this plant has quite a history! Flax was probably the first plant fiber to be woven. It is believed to have been first domesticated in the region of the Fertile Crescent. Remains dating back 36,000 years have been found in a cave in Georgia. It was also a preferred textile in ancient Egypt. The fiber produces a flexible, lightweight, absorbent, thermoregulating, and durable fabric, which explains its popularity. The plant is easy to grow, and its delicate blue flowers are quite lovely. The fibers are found in the core of the stem and are extracted through a controlled decomposition process called retting.

The Nathalie flax is part of the flax preservation program
