Medieval Linen Bow String


A traditional flemish twist linen string. Linen is correct for the medieval and tudor period and would have been an option to the medieval archer. 


These strings are ideal for displays or period correct comeptitions. However, the folklaw around traditiona strings is correct and they typically need far more care than modern materials. 


These strings can be made in all sizes and customers are asked to state the bow weight, length, and nock size for the best fitting string. 

Nock shape
  • Care

    Linen is a natural material and as such is prone to inconsistency. Strings can typically last hundreds of arrows but they are not intended for extended every day shooting on heavy bows.
