    Size 6 tow linen from Bockens.

    The "tow" are the shorter flax fibers as separated from the long fibers before the spinning process. These shorter fibers make a lovely linen yarn that is a bit more rustic in nature than the line linen made from the longer fibers. The fibers in our beautiful tow linens are long and strong; they make a beautiful warp yarn that students in our Swedish Classics class experience in the form of a beautiful little tablecloth using tow linen in both warp and weft. One of many classic uses for tow linen is weft for towels and runners.
