What is everfresh? (why is this yarn so unique) Everfresh is an antimicrobial fibre that has been developed by Aska, the world's leading acrylic fibre producer. The everfresh fibre has zinc ions clinically engineered into the heart of each and every fibre.
Why add Zinc? Zinc is an essential nutrient that helps your immune system function, that is found in foods such as broccoli, spinach, kale and meat.
Why Put Zinc in Yarn? Zinc prevents the formation of bacteria, fungi, and mould. It also has anti-viral properties. Unlike other antimicrobe "spray on" technologies, which will wear off after washing. Everfresh remains in the heart of the yarn wear after wear, wash after wash, keeping life's little nasties away from our cherished loved ones.
