TENCEL™ is a brand name by Lenzing AG, known for their sustainably sourced wood and responsible production techniques for their lyocell fibers. There's no doubt why it is found in many leading designer brands!
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 cellulose fibers absorb 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.
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 lyocell 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 our skin.
Distinguished by their greater strength among cellulose fibers, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are durable and have a long-lasting quality
The efficient dye uptake of TENCEL™ Lyocell enables color dyes to penetrate deeply into the fiber structure, resulting in impressive color brilliance. Furthermore, when viewed under an electron microscope, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers exhibit a smooth surface area, giving textiles a luxurious sheen. Thus, appear brighter and perceptibly more intense that that of cotton fabrics.
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers absorbs moisture efficiently. In comparison to polyester and synthetics, and even to cotton, 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.
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are derived from sustainable woods sources- sustainably managed forests. Wood and pulp used by the Lenzing Group is harvested from certified and controlled sources.
All TENCEL™ standard Lyocell fibers are biodegradable and compostable under industrial, home, soil, fresh water and marine conditions, thus they can fully revert back to nature.
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 choices are not contributing to an adverse impact on the environment.
