Not only is the Tencel™ Lyocell fibre gorgeous, it’s also considered the most eco-friendly fibre in the world to date.
As a matter of fact, it’s produced from Eucalyptus wood which makes it 100% biodegradable. What’s more, its production process (closed cycle) allows 99% of the solvents to be reused, uses less energy and also less water.
Like all this wasn’t enough, this fibre is really nice and effective: it’s resistant, pleasant to the touch and also bright and breathable.
All you have to do now is try it!
Our Tencel™ Lyocell tops are perfect for felting, both needle and wet, spinning and hand weaving.
ATTENTION: all of our colours tend to have a good level of hardiness to light and to washing. However, dark and bright colours when in the presence of alkaline or very aggressive soaps and prolonged processing or washing may show a loss of colour. Thus, for any materials dyed with these types of colours we recommend that you carry out a processing and washing test using a small sample before you proceed working on your final project. The above mentioned testing is positively essential if these materials are to be combined with raw or light coloured materials. It is also good practice to never dry the materials in direct sunlight, instead be sure to use low lighting.
