TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers have gained the reputation for their environmentally responsible, closed loop production process, which transforms wood pulp into cellulosic fibers with high resource efficiency and low ecological impact. This solvent-spinning process recycles process water and reuses the solvent at a recovery rate of more than 99%
Composed of natural material, all TENCEL™ standard Lyocell fibers are biodegradable and compostable under industrial, home, soil and marine conditions, thus they can fully revert back to nature.
gentle on skin
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are naturally soft to the touch and offer long-lasting comfort. When viewed under an electron microscope, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers exhibit a smooth surface area, giving fabrics a soft feel and ensuring comfort for sensitive skin.
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are naturally smooth to the touch and enhance the quality of fabrics to glide lightly over your skin.
The smooth fiber surface of TENCEL™ Lyocell cellulose fibers absorbs moisture more efficiently than cotton. This supports the body’s natural thermal regulating mechanism, keeping your skin feeling cool and dry throughout the day and night. Fabrics can also be engineered to provide warm and dry sensations on the skin.
unfavorable for bacterial growth
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers absorb moisture efficiently. In comparison to polyester and synthetics, there is less available moisture formed on the surface of the fiber for bacteria to grow. Consequently, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers provide a less favorable environment for bacterial growth, offering better hygienic qualities to fabrics.
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers naturally manage the transportation of moisture, enhancing fabrics by keeping your skin feeling pleasantly comfortable. Composed of natural material, the microscopic fibrils of cellulosic fibers are structured to regulate the absorption and release of moisture. This contributes to breathable fabrics that support the body’s natural temperature regulating properties, creating a refreshingly cooling sensation on your skin.
minimal static charge
The ability to absorb moisture makes TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers tension-free with no electrostatic charging. In comparison with synthetics, there is an absence of electrostatic charge.
Distinguished by their greater strength among cellulose fibers, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are durable and have a long-lasting quality.
Soft to the touch, fabrics containing TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers produce a smooth drape, creating a flattering appearance.
Viewed under an electron microscope, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers exhibit a sleek surface area, giving textiles a luxurious sheen. The smooth fiber surface of TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers enable deeper color dyes, making them shine perceptibly more intensively than cotton fabrics.
The smooth surface of TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers enable color dyes to penetrate deeply into the fiber structure, resulting in impressive color brilliance.
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are derived from sustainable wood sources – sustainably managed forests. Wood and pulp used by the Lenzing Group is harvested from certified and controlled sources.
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers have gained a commendable reputation for their environmentally responsible, closed loop production process, which transforms wood pulp into cellulosic fibers with high resource efficiency and low environmental impact. This solvent-spinning process recycles process water and reuses the solvent at a recovery rate of more than 99%. Consumers can have the assurance that their fashion choices are not contributing to an adverse impact on the environment.
contribute to performance
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers can be combined with other fibers to optimize the resulting fabric properties of sportswear for any sporting activity. As a component of sportswear, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers sustain hydrophilic qualities over time (with a fiber surface that attracts water), making them a practical alternative to synthetic fibers. Blending synthetic fibers with TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers results in high performance sportswear for athletic activities, which can generate high levels of perspiration. When used in the right fabric design, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers offer a quick drying effect through efficient moisture absorption, resulting in enhanced breathability and thermal comfort.
