Info on the material ‘Tencel’:
What is it?
Tencel is an ecologically sustainable organic material, made from wood chips primarily from beech and eucalyptus trees. The trees are FSC certified and the wood chips originate from the natural thinning of forests and as byproducts of other timber production.
Tencel is the most sustainable material made under excellent environmental considerations.
The fibres’ composition from beech and eucalyptus make the Tencel material really comfortable against the skin. The fibre’s smooth structure makes the yarn softer than silk and smoother for the skin than wool and cotton, and is also super absorbent.
The thread can be more loosely spun in some places than others, which is a natural part of the thread’s character. The finished result is so lovely.
Children will love the Tencel Bamboo yarn!
It would be difficult to find another yarn so gentle and soft against the skin as the Tencel Bamboo yarn – Children will definitely be delighted with the feeling against the skin.
