437 material TENCEL®
TENCEL® is a man-made textile fibre, produced with pulp from sustainably
planted eucalyptus and other fast-growing woods. TENCEL® yarns are spun
with minimal chemical waste, and both fibres and the fabrics made from
them are biodegradable.
Fabrics made with pure TENCEL® fibres have a cotton-like appearance and a smooth, silky feel. More often, though, the fibres are added to other materials in yarn blends, used for their functional properties.
TENCEL® fibres efficiently absorb moisture and transport it away from the skin, which results in a cooling and quick-dry effect compared to a pure cotton knit or weave. With less moisture exposed on the fibre surface, TENCEL® fabrics are also more resistant to bacteria and odour.
