Lyocell or the branded name, Tencel®, is a more environmentally friendly substitute for viscose. It is of botanic origin, since it is extracted from the raw material wood. Tencel fabrics have a beautiful drape, allow your skin to 'breathe' and don’t absorb odors. The fabrics has a luxurious look and feel and is very comfortable to wear!
Tencel is sustainable because the fabric is biodegradable, made of renewable material and attention is paid to sourcing wood pulp from sustainably managed forests. Other environmental benefits are that there is no bleaching needed before processing as the fiber is very ‘clean’ by itself. The energy, water and chemical consumption is reduced to a minimum due to the unique closed loop production process. And you can launder clothing made of tencel effectively at a low temperature.
