What is Kelsun?

Kelsun is seaweed-based and has a significantly lower environmental footprint than legacy fibers.

Created using an abundant biopolymer found in kelp, Kelsun harnesses the renewable and regenerative power of the ocean.

Why seaweed?

Seaweed is one of the most regenerative organisms on our planet, and it absorbs carbon dioxide from the environment it is grown in.

Growing kelp is a win for us, and a win for the planet, resulting in cleaner, improved marine habitats and ecosystems and less carbon in our air and water.

Where can Kelsun be used?

Kelsun can be used wherever yarns and textiles have an application. This includes the fashion industry, with applications in garments and accessories, but also to other industries such as home furnishings, interiors, and automotive.

Is Kelsun plant-based?

Kelsun is derived from kelp, which is a type of seaweed. While technically not a plant, seaweed has a similar structure (for example, blades instead of leaves) to land-based plants, and in the right conditions, can grow between 12-18 inches per day.

Where is Kelsun made?

We produce Kelsun fiber internally at our North Carolina headquarters, and in collaboration with external manufacturing partners.  Our network of yarn spinners assist in creating Kelsun blended yarn. Additionally, we partner with organizations worldwide to help transition their existing supply chains into compatible systems that work with our materials.

Can Kelsun be composted?

Yes! We have found in verified third party testing that Kelsun is highly compostable within 60 days. We believe composting is a great way to recycle organic materials like Kelsun.
