Understood to be softer than silk, more absorbent that cotton and cooler than linen, it’s no surprise that TENCEL® is the latest ‘must have’ fibre.
This increasingly popular fibre is perfect for combating asthma and allergies and can be found in a variety of bedding options from luxurious duvet inners, mattress protectors, sheet sets and even pillows. If you or someone you know suffers from asthma or allergies, then you will know the importance of hypo-allergenic bedding. After all we spend a decent amount of time in bed so having good quality bedding is important.
One thing we love about TENCEL® is that it’s environmentally friendly. While many fibres claim to be environmentally friendly, TENCEL® goes above and beyond.
But what exactly is TENCEL®? TENCEL® is a unique new fibre that is 100% organic and is made from the wood pulp of sustainable tree farms and can be grown on marginal land. Isn’t that amazing! Plus it’s fully recyclable and 100% biodegradable.
As well as being eco-friendly, TENCEL® has a number of advantages that very few fibres feature.
Moisture absorption – One of TENCEL’s most remarkable attributes is its ability to absorb moisture and wick it away from the body, meaning sleepers will stay dry and cool all night long. Another benefit is that the textile is almost incapable of holding bacteria, making TENCEL® perfect for asthma and allergy sufferers and those with sensitive skin. Not surprisingly, TENCEL® holds the Sensitive Choice Seal of Approval awarded by the National Asthma Association.
Silky-Smooth – There are few people who touch TENCEL® and are not impressed by its soft, luxurious feel. TENCEL® feels like silk and has a wonderful drape.
Easy-Care – It would be easy to believe that a fibre that sounds as delicate and sophisticated as TENCEL® might need special care. But in fact, the opposite is true. TENCEL® is surprisingly durable and flexible and can be machine washed and tumble dried making cleaning easy. Not even a drop of fabric softener or whitening agent is required – which helps in further saving our precious little planet.
