Introduction to Tencel Fabrics
Have you gone shopping recently probably for your summer wear?
Then there is a high chance that you must have seen this fibre; popularly known as Tencel or lyocell fabric in one of the boutique hang stands, racks or closets you visited. We knew you didn’t bother to ask about it, after all, most of us would focus on our target to avoid unplanned buying. Well, that’s great and a good habit!
However, there is something magical and exquisite about Tencel fabric that even if you’ve purchased dozens of other wears, Tencel fabric-made clothes are still a must this summer! I know you still don’t believe it; why don’t we explore more about the Tencel, a sustainable fabric for this summer.
What Is Tencel?
Tencel fabric is a sustainable yarn invented by Lenzing; a fabric-making company in Australia in the early 70s. Unlike most fabrics that come from plant seeds and animal skin; Tencel is a product of cellulose in trees; eucalyptus trees to be precise. As you can see; Tencel is strictly a sustainable fabric. Aside from being extracted from a plant; it requires manual efforts to make it a finished product. Which, by default, makes it 100% non-toxic and pollution-free.
The popularly nicknamed “the green fibre of the 21st century,” can be seen in two types; namely, Tencel lyocell and Tencel modal. Anything apart from these two types is as you’ve anticipated, FAKE!
Both types are cellulosic fibres that combine with other fibres such as cotton and polyester, wool, silk, and acrylic to form something exclusive! Although, Tencel lyocell fabric is made of thick wool which is why they are commonly used in the bedding industries.
While Tencel modal, on the other hand, passes through a similar process. However, made of thinner threads for a soft touch and breathable fabric. Modal makes fine wear as a result of their quality and texture.
What About Tencel Cotton?
In short, Tencel cotton is the combination of Tencel and cotton fabrics to form a distinct product. While being realistic, among various fabrics that can be blended with Tencel; cotton is exceptional! You can think of it as eating your cake and still having it! Come to think of it, both fabrics are extracted from plants; one from the seed; the other from the plant cellulose, what a family reunion combo!
The blend of Tencel and cotton gives the fabrics a new definition. This is why most customers, at times, find it hard to determine whether the product in question is cotton or Tencel fibre until they read its description.
