When choosing a pillow, blanket, or bedsheets, our options nowadays are way more diverse than just cotton. Although cotton is still popular, its large carbon footprint has led us to look for new and more sustainable alternatives.  

One of the creators of a more sustainable standard is TENCEL Lyocell – cellulose fibers obtained from sustainable renewable wood, in accordance with environmentally friendly production principles. TENCEL fibers are certified as compostable and biodegradable, meaning they can be completely returned to nature.

Production 

Wood-based cellulose is converted into TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers in a highly resource-efficient and environmentally friendly closed production process. Specially cultivated raw materials are used and a particularly economical production cycle means that the material, water, and solvent are 99.5% recyclable. This sustainable production process also received the European Commission’s Technology Award for Sustainable Development in 2020.

Features 

TENCEL fibers are similar to bamboo and viscose but are more sustainable. Thanks to its unique properties, TENCEL Lyocell offers the utmost in comfort and is extremely durable, super-absorbent, and gentle on your skin. The texture is very similar to silk, stronger than viscose, warm as wool, and softer than cotton. TENCEL fibers are often mixed with other commonly used fibers (eg wool, cotton, or polyester), giving the product its unique properties and softness.
