How to Craft the Padded Armor Set

Obtain Linen Thread

Valheim - How to get Linen Thread.png

To craft Padded Armor, you'll first need to get your hands on some Linen Thread, which is obtained by processing Flax in a Spinning Wheel. Flax is planted inside Fuling Villages in the Plains biome. These villages are teeming with high level enemies so be careful!

How to Farm Flax

Craft and Upgrade Your Forge and Workbench

The Padded Armor is the strongest armor in the game (so far!) so you'll need the upgraded versions of the Forge and the Workbench in order to craft it!
