The yarn MarEik 40 is made from 60% undyed icelandic wool and 40% SeaCell TM fibers.
SeaCell (Seaweed-Cellulose) are fibers made with cellulose from trees (from responsible forestries) incorporated with Icelandic seaweed.
With the seaweed you get bioactivity like antioxidant activity and antibacterial activity.
Antioxidant activity is good for our skin and antibacterial activity helps us prevent infections and control body odour.
The icelandic wool in this yarn is bought from the minimill UppSpuni which spins this yarn and treats the wool from scratch. They use a mild lemon detergent which leaves a lot of the lanolin in the wool.
Your hands will benefit from the lanolin during the knitting process and afterwards the finished garment will also be good for the skin of the user.

Gauge on 3.5 mm needles is 22 stiches and 30 rows for 10 cm (4 in)
