Scutched flax

During scutching, the recovered fibres are separated by length into long and short fibres (also known as tow). Scutched flax is made of the long fibres, also called long strand or tow.  These are the noble parts of the product separated from the straw and are the fibres from which the farmer will expect the best quality, the best valuations and the best return valuation.
