Flax and the omega connection
Flax is grown for its seed and fibre. It is
one of the oldest textile fibres. There is evidence that it was grown and used
in the prehistoric lake dwellings of Switzerland. Fine linen fabrics
made from flax have also been discovered in ancient Egyptian tombs. Later it
was found that the seed and its oil had important health benefits.
