Fiber Characteristics

LYOCELL

Manufactured Fiber - cellulosic-based

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Excellent strength
  • Washable
  • Shrink- and wrinkle-resistant
  • Soft hand
  • Excellent drape
  • Absorbent
  • Dyes and prints well

MAJOR END USES:

  • Apparel - dresses, suits, sportswear, pants, jackets, blouses, skirts.
  • Home Fashions - curtains, draperies, upholstery, bedspreads, table linens, sheets, dish towels, bath towels.

Comments - This is the newest cellulosic fiber, and a new brand name that you may have seen recently is Tencel®. This fiber is cellulosic, and it is very similar to rayon in appearance. The major difference between lyocell and rayon is that lyocell is much more durable and has a much stronger wet strength. It can also be machine washable and dryable.

The easily adjustable RS2 harness has a small to XL range built in to the harness design. The padded and stiffened hip-belt and shaped alloy frame-stays transfer the load where it needs to be, while the padded EVA shoulder straps, adjustable sternum straps and padded back panel makes the trek over the Tongariro Crossing more comfortable.
