Lyocell fabric refers to an perfect eco friendly which is considered as a milestone in environmentally sustainable textiles development. Lyocell is a popular man made fibre. Lyocell textiles are created by using nanotechnology with award-winning closed-loop process which is 100% biodegradable and offers you exceptional comfort experience.
Advantages of Lyocell Fabric
Since the Lyocell Fabric is made from natural cellulose found in wood pulp, it is economical and is fully biodegradable.
For its high absorbency property, the Lyocell can be created with various color in mind. Also it can be dyed to high quality standards.
Comparing to cotton, Lyocell Fabric is greater as high as 50% in moisture absorption aspect. Furthermore this eco fabric has natural breathability.
Due to its moisture management, lyocell is also anti-bacterial.
Feel of Fabric
The fabric is soft, breathable, lightweight and comfortable. Lyocell has an greater experience touching experience.
Great for sensitive skin
The smooth fiber surface feels soft and supple against the skin so it is a great fabric for sensitive skin. Wicking abilities is able to keep the skin dry.
Lyocell fabric has controllable fibrillation that can be manipulated into various form suede-like softness reaching smooth finish like silky.
Lyocell fabric can withstand a beating both in wet and dry condition which helps to resistant to wrinkles.
Disadvantage of Lyocell Fabric
Lyocell costs higher than most eco fabric alternatives.
Caring for Lyocell Fabric
Lyocell fabric can be washed with hand in cold water and can be dipped into a gentle detergent. While drying up, the lyocell fabric will shrink about 3% after the first washing, and from then on it will resist shrinking.
Machine washing, using the gentle cycle, is splendid for many garments (read the garment care label), and drip drying is preferable to machine drying. If line dried, you can temporarily toss in the dryer with a damp towel to soften the fabric.
If you wanna touch up the garment using an iron, make sure the iron warm for direct heat may damage the fabric.
FAQ on Lyocell Fabric
How is Lyocell made?
Lyocell is made from wood pulp cellulose and is produced in a solvent spinning process which is sustainable and uniquely revolutionary.
In the process of Lyocell solvent spinning, 99.5％ solvent can be recycled, purified and reused in a closed loop circuit. This process is environmentally friendly. On the basis of natural material, Lyocell is 100% organic and has won many awards including the “European Environmental Award from the European Union”.
