Feel Good Yarn SilverSpun® Yarn
Part of the Jimmy Beans' Smart Yarn Collection, SilverSpun® is a light weight sock yarn made out of non-animal fiber... and including, you guessed it - silver! Why is SilverSpun® so smart?! 1. Because, with gloves made out of it, you can use your smartphone (the silver is conductive)! 2. Because the silver in the yarn inhibits the growth of odor causing bacteria (perfect for non-stinky socks... which is, ahem, smart for us all!). SilverSpun®, produced for us exclusively by The Feel Good Yarn Co., also has excellent thermal properties and is specifically a blend of soft cotton, nylon for strength, spandex for stretch, and silver (for smart-ness)!
Please be aware that Indigo will rub off (called crocking) while working with it. Soap & water will remove it from the skin. The yarn has been processed in a way to help minimize crocking, but we suggest soaking the finished garment in warm water with a small amount of hydrogen peroxide.
Minimizing our environmental footprint and supporting US production is incredibly important to Feel Good Yarn (and us!), so the cotton is grown in the US, the silver is produced in the US, and the yarn is spun and dyed in the US!
We recommend winding hanks of this yarn by hand. Wash all colorways of Silverspun by hand, alone, in cold water and using a mild soap.
