We estabilish a structure theorem for diverge-free vectorfields $u$ in $*R*^2$ arising in a micromagnetics model. Precisely, we assume that $u$ is representable as $e^{i\,\phi}$ for a suitable bounded Borel function $\phi$ and that the measure $$ \mu\phi:=\int{R}
$$ is locally finite in $*R*^2$. We show that the $1$-dimensional part of $\mu_\phi$ (i.e. the set of points where the upper spherical $1$-dimensional density of $\mu_\phi$ is strictly positive) is countably rectifiable, and that out of this part $\phi$ has vanishing mean oscillation. The proof is based on a delicate blow-up argument and on the classification of all blow-ups.
