What is Tencel?
Tencel is a brand name for products made from lyocell fibres manufactured by the house of Lenzing. Lyocell and Tencel yarn are made from fibres extracted from wood pulp, commonly Eucalyptus and other certified plantation timbers and wet-spun into yarn.
The regenerated sustainably sourced fibres and the non-toxic solvents used in the manufacturing process which have a 99% recovery rate for reuse makes Tencel / lyocell fibres an extremely eco-friendly option, due to the closed-loop system. Textiles of TENCEL® fibres are more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen.
Why use Tencel yarn in your weaving?
While a number of synthetic fibres have a negative reputation for feeling substandard, Tencel has the combined luxurious drape of silk and the breathability and durability of cotton. Here are some of the many reasons why you should use Tencel yarn in your weaving.
- Tencel possesses a soft and luxurious texture.
The texture of Tencel material is incredibly soft, luxurious, and lightweight, but also sturdy, which makes it perfect for weaving garments that are meant to provide comfort and breathability. With its stunning drape and elegant sheen, Tencel yarn is the perfect choice for a wide variety of projects, such as weaving delicate lace shawls and lightweight tops.
- Tencel dries quickly and does not retain moisture.
Tencel is a rayon-type material that offers enhanced strength, durability, and moisture absorption in comparison to other yarns. Its capacity to absorb and retain moisture is greater than other yarns such as cotton, wool, and silk. This means that the fabric created with Tencel yarn will stay cool and comfortable for longer, as it is better at wicking away moisture from the skin. Tencel is a popular choice among leading designers and renowned retailers, thanks to its unique physical properties, including great strength, efficient moisture absorption and gentleness to skin. Overall, Tencel fabric is a great choice for apparels that need a more delicate feel and can help keep the wearer comfortable in a variety of temperatures.
- Tencel is resistant to mould and mildew.
Tencel yarn is also known for its resistance to mould and mildew. Unlike wool, which is prone to shrinking and stretching with moisture, Tencel yarn is highly absorbent and can wick moisture away from the surface, while still maintaining its shape. This makes it ideal for projects that will be exposed to water or humidity. Additionally, Tencel yarn is easy to care for and can be machine washed and dried.
