TENCEL is extracted from eucalyptus trees, is 100% of natural origin and is 100% biodegradable in nature. TENCEL is a new name for Lyocell cellulose fibre from Lenzing. Compared to cotton, TENCEL absorbs twice as much moisture and, unlike synthetic fibres, releases it back into the atmosphere, thus significantly improve the skin’s ability to breathe under it. It significantly prevents the growth of bacteria and does not contain any chemicals which can cause the development of allergic reactions.
It is as soft as silk, cool as flax and keeps you warm like wool. It is therefore often used for sportswear, although it is very comfortable to wear normally. This material is also used in Austrian hospitals for doctors’ clothing in surgeries, and as a consumable textile material in operating rooms.
