TENCEL® LYOCELL is a sleek and strong fiber made from cellulose, a natural compound that build up plants and trees. Tencel provides a cool feeling against the skin and is highly breathable. It can also take up moisture very well. At Houdini, we use several blends of Tencel and merino wool. It gives the wool a nice drape, add texture and acts as reinforcement.
Tencel is produced in a very sustainable way, using fast growing FSC certified trees. The chemicals and water used in the production can be reused and circle back to a rate of over 99%. Tencel™ Lyocell is produced in Lenzing, Austria and marked with the EU Ecolabel.
