This is truly a smart fiber! The sea is the origin of life full of interesting secrets! An entire ocean full of substances which are used to promote human health come directly from the sea. One of these substances is seaweed, full of valuable ingredients used to promote good health.
The fibers from this magical plant have a beneficial effect. Now fiber producers are combining this fiber with cellulose to create a marine based substance in spin-able form! This is grade A seacell fiber. Manufactured using the so-called lyocell process. Seaweed has been used in Chinese Medicine as an agent to protect the skin with anti-inflammatory properties. This is forward thinking fiber, innovative to say the least. Nutrients such as calcium, magnesium and vitamin E are released by the natural body moisture when the fiber is worn. in addition, the textile's properties provide other advantages such as breathability and softness. Silky softness. Garments made form this fiber last through and through and promote well being and comfort. A true innovative luxury fiber.
This is wholly raw material made from cellulose that couldn't be any at more with nature. This seacell fiber is prepared into a combed top for ease of spinning. A staple length of 3-5 inches and a micron count of 18-20. Use it in your next blend to add a bit of lustrous silk like texture. Dye it up with cellulose dyes to create your own color ways.
I like blending with other fibers and dying. It is a wonderful addition adding sheen and color variation.
Blended 60%suri alpaca 40% seacell, for a beautifully soft yarn with great sheen and drape. The cellulose fiber takes dye differently from the protein fiber, so creates it own shading. Seacell 's producers, a German company have won many awards for their environmentally sound practices! Will buy this many more times!
Spins like butter and blends wonderfully.
Very soft would benefit with blending with another fibre like merino as in the rose blend. Will card with another fibre to spin as it is a bit too soft but would be suitable for an item that requires a soft drape. Very lovely but different
Soft, lustrous, and easy to work with.
