Flax Project In the News

The Field Lab project to grow flax for textiles featured today on BBC News and Farming Today…

We were excited to harvest the flax from our Innovative Farmers Field Lab trial – and to share the early results with reporters. Designer Rosie Bristow @straw_into_gold and Field Lab facilitator Colleen McCulloch @thelothianlass featured in the coverage alongside our own Jossie, talking about how and why we’re growing flax at the farm.

The story also featured later on BBC Reporting Scotland and in The Times.

It’s great to see the interest in the flax spreading to a wider audience, and to be part of the conversation about regenerative fashion and textiles in Scotland.
