Silver kills a number of bacteria, including those that cause odor, has excellent thermal properties, is nontoxic and is perfect for those with sensitive skin. Silver is also an excellent conductive agent, thus allowing smartphone or tablet touch screen use while wearing gloves knit from this yarn. The silver is permanently adhered to the yarn and will not wash out. Made in the USA.
