What is Tencel Fibre and where does it come from?
What a great question.
Tencel fibre, otherwise known as Lyocell, is a form of Rayon which consists of cellulose fibre made by dissolving bleached wood pulp (usually a hardwood like oak or birch) using a dry jet-wet spinning system. It is a non-animal fibre. Tencel is used in many everyday fabrics such as denim, chino and towels. Tencel can be blended with a variety of other fibres such as silk, cotton, rayon, polyester, lined, nylon and wool.
