Introducing a new fiber imported from Italy. It’s called “Sea Cell”. The fiber is created from seaweed. The created fiber is reported to posses the health properties of seaweed for example increasing circulation and even is said to retain them after washing. The rooving looks something like silk. I carded to blend turquoise merino and silk and green merino and silk with the Sea Cell. The yarn spun up beautifully. I’ve dubbed the spun yarn “sea mist”. If you’d like to try it, I’ll soon be posting an exotic fiber trial kits which will include Sea Cell Top on my Etsy site.
