Lyocell is a relatively new type of man-made cellulosic fibre, made from wood pulp in a closed-loop manufacturing process, making this a sustainable fabric.
(It is often called Tencel™ which is a brand name for Lyocell.)
It has the same comfort properties as other cellulosic fabrics like cotton, linen and rayon, but with the added advantage of additional strength and drape.
It is soft, breathable and therefore very pleasant to wear.
With a slight shine, and less prone to wrinkles, these dressmaking fabrics make for a luxurious alternative to cotton.
