Flax detail.png

Flax is a plant that can be picked up, multiple can be collected from the same node. It is used to make bow strings at a spinning wheel, requiring 10 Crafting, yielding 15 Crafting experience. Flax can also be spun via the Spin Flax Lunar spell.

Completing the Kandarin Diary allows players to exchange noted flax with the Flax keeper once a day in exchange for bow strings. The easy diary unlocks 30 per day, medium 60 per day, hard 120 per day, and elite 250 per day.

Flax in Tree Gnome Stronghold does not exist in Deadman Mode worlds.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The flax growing in the Miscellania farming patch has a different flower than those encountered throughout the rest of Gielinor. This suggests a domesticated cultivar, differing from the "wild type" farmed on Miscellania.
