Seacell is a modern fibre made from plant based cellulose – essentially lyocell – that is wet spun to add seaweed as an active ingredient. The lyocell stablises the seaweed to bond as a fibre very suited to fine textile use. Seacell is said to have antioxidant health giving properties – a wellness factor. In use it is a cooler, silky yarn that has wicking properties which makes it particularly good for warmer climates or summer wear. It can also add softness to a linen blend.
We often weave Seacell with supima cotton for an ultimately super soft wrapping experience or with silk to combine a cushiness from the Seacell with the strength of silk.
