Our Story

Through her curiosity and love of knitting, Laurie Gonyea discovered the magical and therapeutic properties of yarn spun with pure silver. However, this extraordinary material was not being produced in the US for the hand knitting market.  Laurie set out to change that.

In 2013, Laurie teamed up with North Carolina State University to produce the first hand knitting yarn in the US using American-grown cotton and pure silver, and called it Silver Spun®. Together they created a revolutionary yarn that is as warm as wool, soft as butter, kills odor causing germs, and needs less washes.

For six years Silver Spun® was only available to knitters, but Laurie always had bigger plans for her yarn.  She wanted to make the therapeutic qualities of this yarn available to everyone. The result is a collection of super cozy socks that are kind to your skin and the world around you. Each collection is designed and made in the US, crafted with the finest fabrics, infused with pure silver, and produced in limited runs.
