Great spinning fibre for blending and plying. Hand-dyed using non-toxic dyes.
TENCEL® (trade name of lyocell fibre) offers a unique combination of desirable properties from natural fibres. It’s described to be softer than silk, cooler than linen and more absorbent than cotton. The smoothness of this fibre provides gentle conditions for the skin and has excellent wicking properties.
Lyocell fibre is made from cellulose found in wood pulp from fast growing eucalyptus trees. The fibre is produced via an advanced closed-loop process using a non-toxic solvent where about 99% is continually recovered and recycled during manufacturing (no bleach is required). The European Union awarded this process the Environmental Award in the “technology for sustainable developments” category.
Products made from lyocell are recyclable and biodegradable.
