CHICO FLAX’S MISSION
To pilot regenerative production and processing systems for flax in our region, bringing a new industry and social enterprise to Northern California in collaboration with local community members, farmers, artisans and institutions.
FROM FLAXSEED TO LINEN THREAD
Believing in regenerative agriculture and processing systems, Sandy is actively involved in every step of the process of making her linen blend yarns. This interest is also infused into her current work. She collaborates with local community members, farmers, fellow artisans, and institutions to grow, harvest, and process flax into linen-blended yarn.
