Tencel is the major division of lyocell, regenerated cellulose fiber made from bleached wood pulp. Tencel are soft, absorbent, very strong when wet or dry, and resistant to wrinkles. Therefore, they can be easily maintained with machine washing or dry cleaning. The closed-loop manufacturing process makes Tencel the most eco-friendly of the naturally regenerating fibers.
