Cold weather can make it difficult to enjoy the world when you are out and about.

Kill Odor Causing Bacteria
Silver inhibits the growth of odor causing bacteria. It is uncomfortable wearing a piece that doesn’t smell right. With the silver in the yarn, you’ll be able to maintain the fresh smell of your knit clothing a lot longer.
The thermal properties of silver ensure that the knit materials are able to produce plenty of warmth when you wear them in cold weather. This will improve the effectiveness of knit hats or knit scarves especially if you have an aversion to animal fibers.
Soothing for Arthritis
The thermal properties of silver can be beneficial for those with arthritis. SilverSpun® yarn keeps your hands or feet warm and in turn warms up your joints. The extra warmth is soothing to your arthritis and allows you to minimize the pain you experience in cold weather. The cold doesn’t have to be a painful experience for you.
Great for Diabetics
Like arthritis, the thermal properties of items that are knit with the SilverSpun® yarn have a soothing effect on people with diabetes or sensitive skin. Silver has anti-microbial properties that assist in killing germs, helping to keep the feet of diabetics wearing socks made from the yarn infection free. Best of all, the silver in the material is permanently adhered to the yarn and will not wash out.
