Which is better, Tencel or Pure Cotton?

There is a kind of fabric, which is more comfortable than cotton ad has better moisture absorption, having the silk touch and drape, is one of the most comfortable fabrics in spring and summer. It uses 100% natural wood pulp as raw material and adopts solvent spinning technology to spin, which is a sustainable fabric. In China, we call her tancel. In fact, her scientific name is lesser.

More hygroscopic and breathable than cotton

The moisture absorption performance of tencel is better than pure cotton, and pure cotton moisture regain rate is 8%, and tencel moisture regain rate is about 12%, 50% higher; at the same time, air permeability for the tencel is also better than pure cotton, and pure cotton air permeability is between 200 and 500 while tencel can reach 1500, three times as much as pure cotton, which is very comfortable to use in summer.

More delicate and soft than cotton

The surface of tencel is finer than that of pure cotton. The surface roughness of pure cotton is 3.46, while that of tencel is only 0.628. Therefore, the bedding made of tencel fabric is very beneficial to the skin in spring and summer, especially for women, which can make them feel the comfortable feeling between the fabric and the skin.

Cooler and sleepier than cotton

The weather began to warm up, especially entering summer, the advantages of thermal conductivity and contact warmth of pure cotton in winter disappeared, and tencel fabric will replace with it. Because the thermal conductivity of tencel is 0.18, which is much stronger than cotton, and the contact to cold feeling is strong, so it is a good fabric in summer.

In addition to so many characteristics, tencel is a natural biodegradable fabric, a sustainable fabric, which is renewable, and harmless to society; as a citizen who loves the earth, it is a good choice.
