Tencel is made from the wood pulp of the eucalyptus tree grown in sustainably managed tree farms. Tencel or Lyocell is created through the use of nanotechnology in an award-winning closed-loop process that recovers or decomposes about 98% of solvents and emissions. This fabric is naturally breathable and carries anti-bacterial properties. Tencel is an extremely versatile fabric which can be blended with a variety of other fibres such as cotton, linen, silk, rayon, polyester, nylon and wool. The resulting yarn can be woven or knitted into a variety of finishes from silky to suede-like textures.
