This process consists of immersing the flax in water, with the help of a wooden pole, in order to isolate textile fibres.
The "rouissage" (retting process) could also be done by stretching out the plant in meadows (making the most of air humidity now that water immersion is forbidden).
Flax and hemp cultivated on the plateaus were retted before being delivered to the Saint-Frères factory (textile industry) in Pont-Rémy.
