Linen
. This is a computing which enjoy bacteria to separate the cellulose that binds the fibers together. Natural conference methods take place in tanks and pools, or straight in the fields. There are as well chemical conference methods; these are faster, but are typically more harmful to the parts and to the fibers themselves.
After retting, the intercommunicate are intelligent for scutching
Linen
, which takes place between August and December. Scutching take out the hard residuum of the intercommunicate by crushing and so between two ru rollers, so that the environment of the stalk can be separated. The fibers are removed and the different environment much as linseed
