Wonder no more.
What Is TENCEL™Lyocell?
Produced by Austrian textile company Lenzing AG, TENCEL™ is the brand name for its range of semi-synthetic fibres.
Not all lyocell is equal, there is a huge difference between TENCEL™ branded lyocell and other types of generic lyocell. For a product to carry the TENCEL™ trademark, it must contain at least 30% of Lenzing lyocell fibres.
Generic lyocell is usually made from oak and birch pulp whereas TENCEL™ branded lyocell is mainly made from eucalyptus wood that is harvested from natural forests and sustainably managed tree farms.
From Forest To Fabric
The eucalyptus tree trunks are chopped into small wood chips which are then soaked in a non-toxic organic solution to break the pulp down into a paste. This paste is then ejected under high pressure from a special spinneret nozzle to form fibre threads. The threads are eventually processed into yarn which is then woven to make fabric.
Each Weavve lyocell bedding starts with the best lyocell fibres (100% Lenzing TENCEL™) that are spun into the finest 80s yarn count threads. These fine single ply threads are then woven into 400 thread count fabric, giving you stronger, smoother and lighter sheets.
