Flax, Linum usitatissimum, originated somewhere east of the Mediterranean and west of India and has been used to make linen since the days of ancient Egypt. The long, strong and flexible fibers of the plant’s stem create soft and durable fabric that only becomes softer and more lustrous with age.
Eating flax seed for health is a relatively new idea in this country. Scandinavian people have known its benefits for years, but the tiny, nutrient rich seeds didn’t become popular in this country until the late 1990s. Until then, most of us thought flax was for making linseed oil and linen.
