Lyocell - Regenerated Cellulosic fiber | Texhour

Lyocell is third generation rayon technology. (Tencel® is Lenzing’s brand name for lyocell.) Lyocell’s advantages include the environmental friendliness of its chemical manufacturing combined with its softness, drape, and resistance to growth of bacteria which create odors. Lyocell fabrics also have wicking properties and absorb perspiration and quickly release it into the atmosphere.

Lyocell - Regenerated Cellulosic fiber

• Lyocell is third generation rayon technology. (Tencel® is Lenzing’s brand name for lyocell.) Lyocell’s advantages include the environmental friendliness of its chemical manufacturing combined with its softness, drape, and resistance to growth of bacteria which create odors. Lyocell fabrics also have wicking properties and absorb perspiration and quickly release it into the atmosphere.

• Like modal, lyocell fabrics can be machine washed and tumble dried. Lyocell manufacturing is extremely flexible - manipulating or controlling the fibrils, the very fine hairs found on the outer fibers, produces a wide variety of fabrications – from rugged denim to suede-like (or peach touch) medium weight fabrics,  to clean, smooth & silky touch lightweight fabrics.

• Lyocell can also be manipulated to create an excellent fill material. Lyocell “fill” for bedding has excellent moisture management and temperature regulation to create a pleasant and dry climate during sleeping.

• Lyocell fabrics with natural elongation and recovery properties can be created without having to use elastomeric fibers such as spandex.

• The high tenacity of lyocell in both a wet and dry state increases the dimensional stability of the end product.
