What is 'everfresh' -
Everfresh is an antimicrobial acrylic 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.
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. The fibre manufacturer has tested this on the Covid-19 virus. It was noted that the coronavirus was over 97% ineffective after 30 minutes in products with the Everfresh technology.
Unlike other anti-microbe '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.
Everfresh technology also helps our planet by reducing the need for washing, saving bottles of precious water & power.
