What is Tencel®?

Tencel® is soft as silk, strong as polyester, cool as linen, warm as wool and as absorbent as cotton – simply put, Tencel is a break-through fibre, perfect fabric for allergy sufferers or those with sensitive skin.  Environmentally sustainable, Tencel® is a man made, natural fibre which is also known as lyocell, a biodegradable material made from wood pulp cellulose sourced from sustainable tree farms.

How is Tencel® different to other synthetic fibre?

Tencel® offers unique moisture transport unlike synthetic fibres – mainly as synthetic fibres have reduced wicking properties.  Another difference between Tencel® and synthetic fibres is that of the fact that synthetic fibres cannot absorb moisture into their fibres in any form.  With fibril structure support part of the Tencel® fibre it guarantees optimum conditions for the skin absorbing 50% more moisture than cotton.

How can Tencel® bedding help my eczema or sensitive skin?

Tencel® is soft and supple against the skin and its incredible moisture wicking abilities make it the ideal choice with 50% greater moisture absorption than cotton.  Absorbing excess liquid and releasing it again quickly into the atmosphere inhibits bacteria growth keeping your skin clean and hygienic.  The fibrils in the Tencel® are key to this element and its performance.  Fibrils are tiny components which make up a fibre.  Being hydrophilic, the fibrils optimise the absorption of moisture which in turn creates excellent cooling properties.  The highly breathable nature of Tencel® will also allow your skin to breathe. Fabrics with rougher fibres can cause skin irritation; however due to the extremely smooth surface of Tencel® it feels soft and pleasant against your skin.
