What is seacell?

Seacell is derived from seaweed, but you won’t smell the sea!

It is natural fibre made from crushed seaweed combined with lyocell (a fibre derived from wood pulp), making it easily biodegradable when discarded. The seaweed used is Knotted Wrack, found in Icelandic fjords. Both seacell and lyocell use an energy efficient closed-loop system to reuse water and chemicals. The final yarn contains approx. 4% seaweed.

Often combined with lustrous silk, this yarn is incredibly soft and smooth. It has an amazing sheen and fabulous depth of colour. The wonderful weight and drape make it perfect for a stunning lacy scarf to accessorise your outfit at a special occasion.


We stock this luxury yarn in a versatile 4ply weight called 4ply Silky Sea. The 100gram skein contains 400metres of luxury yarn, which can be used with any standard 4ply pattern suitable for a silk-blend yarn.

We hand dye a wide range of repeatable colourways, together with a regular selection of limited edition shades.
