Caption: Flax. View of part of a field of flowering flax, Linum usitatissimum. Flax is grown as a crop throughout temperate and sub-tropical regions for its fibrous stems and oil containing seed. Flax fibres, which are used to make linen, are strong, cheap and light, as well as being totally natural. Flax seed, called linseed, is used in cattle feed and the extracted oil, linseed oil, is used in the production of paint and varnish.
