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.
