This softly draping Tencel fabric is lightweight and cool. It floats prettily, making it perfect for dresses, blouses, shirts, and wide-legged pants. This plain weave has a matte surface that casts a soft, velvety sheen at folds. It is unbelievably comfortable against the skin.
Use this light Tencel fabric for tops, tunics, and absolutely for spring and summer frocks. It looks great in shirt dresses and simple tunic styles. It also makes wonderful palazzo pants.
Tencel belongs to the rayon family and, like rayon, is made of natural, plant-based materials. In comparison to classic rayon, however, it is much more durable and many times eco-friendlier. Its manufacture produces minimal waste, making it an ecological choice. The water and other materials used in its production are nearly entirely recuperated and reused and, unlike cotton, it requires no pesticides.
Tencel is a trade name for lyocell, and is identical.
Wash at 30°C by hand or using your machine’s delicate cycle and a gentle detergent. Gentle handling will prolong the life of your fabric. Press with a dry iron at medium heat.
