What is Tencel?
TENCEL™ is a brand name for lyocell and modal fibers, part of the viscose family. Tencel is produced by responsible processes using the natural material, wood pulp, originating from Aspen and Birch Trees.
Known for its natural comfort, Tencel is versatile and can be combined with a wide range of textile fibers to enhance the aesthetics and functionality of fabrics, while also improving the softness and comfort. Unique physical properties of the fibers lead to great strength, efficient moisture absorption and gentleness to the skin.
