Tencel ® is the registered name of a regenerated cellulose fibre. The fibre is made from eucalyptus trees grown without the need of fertilisers or water irrigation. Tencel ® fibres are chemically similar to those of cotton and therefore tend to be mixed with cotton. They can also be easily blended with other natural materials. Moreover, Tencel ® is 100% biodegradable. Tencel ® is considered to be one of the most environmentally friendly materials.
Tencel ® is soft as cotton, light and shiny like silk, and as breathable as wool.
