- Scutched tow
Short fibers are released during the scutching part of the dressing process, when the long fibers are split from the immature short fibers. The quality of the short fibers greatly depends on the growing conditions of the crop. As we source our flax from various production regions, we always have a wide range of qualities on offer for short fibers. Short fibers are processed into a purified fiber, which is free of most of the woody parts.
- Hackled tow
During the hackling of long fibers and processing into hackling sliver, hackled tow (short fibers) is produced as a by-product. This hackled tow is pressed into square bales. The qualities depend on the hackling sliver production.
The entire processing installation is SKAL certified for the production of officially recognized, organically produced hackling sliver. If you purchase organic hackling sliver from us, the product will be accompanied by all the necessary official SKAL documentation for further processing purposes.
Van de Bilt zaden en vlas bv can supply flax tow suitable for application in various processing industries (paper, textiles, automotive, etc.).
