TENCEL® is the brand name for the popular lyocell or modal type fabric produced by the Austrian company Lenzing AG. This light and versatile material is a cellulose fiber made by dissolving wood pulp. Its superior moisture-wicking and anti-bacterial properties make it ideal for use in activewear. Requiring less energy and water than cotton, Tencel is also biodegradable and sourced from sustainably managed eucalyptus plantations.
