Please Note: Due to the nature of composite materials, coloration of fabric may change or darken when resin is introduced to your part/fabric.


Flax Linen fiber in a unidirectional pattern gives a unique look of wood to your composite parts. You can use this fiber completely on its own or as a cosmetic top layer to your parts to offer advantages of all fibers while retaining this beautiful appearance. Flax fiber has been proven to offer excellent dampening properties while being very low in density. This will yield a material that has a better strength to weight ratio than standard E-glass. When using this material as a top cosmetic layer you should take into consideration the color of the substrate below as you may need multiple layers especially if covering a dark material like carbon fiber. Due to the fabric being a uni directional material, you are able to lay strips next to each other to make a much wider part without seams. Shown are photos of the dry fiber as well as a chair finished in this beautiful material.

How We Sell - Fabrics

Our fabrics are sold by the linear yard, with the exception of our samples which are a single 4"x4" (or 5"x7") piece. The unit price displayed is for 1 linear yard; all volume discounts will be automatically applied when selecting larger quantities of fabric when added to your shopping cart, as indicated in the table above with quantity discount ranges for units purchased.

Please purchase the number of linear yards that you require. When purchasing multiple yards of the same fabric, you will receive one continuous length of that material. We carefully take that material and roll it onto a cardboard core and wrap clear plastic or Kraft paper over it, making sure to keep the fabric in its first quality condition. We pride ourselves on having one of the best material handling crews possible.

Resin Consumption

Resin consumption is provided for the approximate amount of resin by weight in the final part after processing by vacuum infusion. This does not account for the resin used in the flow lines and consumables such as flow media or breather cloth. Wet-layup by hand will also have a higher resin consumption in the final part and depends on the user’s techniques. Vacuum bagging a wet layup will improve the resin content. Too much resin will cause a weaker part, not stronger. The average rule of thumb is around 45% (+/- a couple of percent). To calculate actual resin % in your part, a burn test is used. For example, you have a part weighing 100 grams, and you would burn off the resin, which would leave the fiber behind. You should have 55 grams of fiber left when your process is working correctly. Due to the variables in processing, it is hard to give an accurate amount of resin needed to purchase for making your part. However, you will have waste no matter what method is used. A suggested ratio is about 1-1.5lbs of resin per lb of fabric purchased.
