What does Tencel mean?

Originally developed to produce viscose fibres without harming the environment, the end result was a new fibre which was not only more environmentally friendly than any other fibre, but also very strong and of beautiful feel.

Heddels explains Tencel

Courtaulds first produced Tencel (the brand name for lyocell) in 1987. It is manufactured using wood pulp cellulose collected from environmentally sustainable plants, and is considered a “green” fiber.

Due to its ability to mimic the look and feel of other fibers perfectly, it has earned the nickname the “chameleon of fibers”.
