TENCEL® – The new age fiber
TENCEL® is the functional fiber from nature. It is of botanic origin, since it is extracted from the raw material wood. Fiber production itself is extremely eco-friendly, due to the closed loop system. On the day that TENCEL® was invented, a new chapter was written in the history of fibers. Textiles of TENCEL® are more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen.
Lenzing presents another TENCEL® fiber innovation: A new micro version of the A100™ fiber type is now available. The new TENCEL® micro fiber complements the range of fibers offered for knitwear applications.
The Lenzing Lyocell fiber TENCEL® is the first fiber to be medically tested according to the FKT test method criteria for body compatibility and toxic substances.
