How to Get Linen Thread in Valheim
Finding flax is the first step in getting linen thread.
The flax will need to be inserted into the spinning wheel once you have it, in order to process it.
Get a Spinning Wheel
You will receive a crafting resource called dragon tears once you have defeated the fourth forsaken, Moder. Dragon tears can be used to create a crafting station called the artisan table.
Using the hammer, the player can craft a spinning wheel once the artisan table is crafted.
Here are the items and materials you will need to create a spinning wheel with the hammer.
- 20 Fine Wood
- 10 Iron Nails
- 5 Leather Scraps
- Within Range of the Artisan Table
A spinning wheel will then be placed down by the player. As soon as the player places the spinning wheel, they can begin spinning flax into linen thread for crafting.
Besides using flax in farming to get more flax or spinning it to make linen thread, flax has no other use.
At any given time, 40 flax can be held on the spinning wheel. As far as the spinning wheel is concerned, there is no need to use coal as fuel. It works automatically without the player’s assistance.
Eventually, the flax pieces will be transformed into linen thread as they exit the output chute. At that point, the player can walk over. They can pick it up and use it immediately.
You can approach the spinning wheel by simply walking up to it. Then, insert flax into the spinning wheel to begin processing flax.
It is only used to obtain linen thread. The spinning wheel cannot be used for anything else.
