Muka extraction Source: Katarina Tawiri  Muka extracts exceptionally cleanly. Para removes effortlessly. Fibre white, smooth and silky. Medium amount of fibre. Excellent muka flax
Raranga - unboiled Source: Katarina Tawiri  Whenu soften easily. Edges fray and release muka strands. Typical muka flax reminding me of Makaweroa but with slightly less fibre.
