Defining Tencel fabrics
Tencel fabric is a kind of cellulose fibers, which adopts the solvent spinning technology. Its dry strength is slightly lower than that of the polyester, but obviously higher than that of the normal viscose fiber. Its wet strength is obviously better than that of the viscose. It has very high rigidity, good water-wash dimensional stability (the shrinkage rate is only 2%), and high hygroscopicity. The fiber cross-section is round or elliptic with beautiful luster and feels soft with good drape and elegance.
What is the tencel fabric like?
Polyester-like high strength
It has the warmth of hair but is easy to harden under hot and humid conditions and damage in cold water.
Lyocell fabric definition/ what is lyocell fabric?
Lyocell fiber, commonly known as "tencel fabric", was born in the middle of 1990s. It is known as the most valuable product in the history of artificial fibers in the past half-century. With properties of both natural and synthetic fibers, Lycell is a green fiber. It's made of the raw material of inexhaustible cellulose in nature. Its production process has no chemical reaction and its solvent is nontoxic.
