Through her curiosity and love of knitting, Laurie discovered the magical and therapeutic properties of yarn spun with pure silver. Soon after, she learned her new favorite material was not produced in the US. She set out to change that. Teaming up with NC State University, they created the first hand-knitting yarn combining US-grown cotton and pure silver, a revolutionary yarn that is as warm as wool, soft as butter, kills odor-causing germs, and conducts energy. At Silver Spun, Laurie has created a collection of limited-run cozy socks that are kind to your skin and the world around you.
