Tencel is the world’s most sustainable, man-made fibre. Made from wood pulp of fast growing gum trees. It requires 1 tenth of the amount of water required to grow compared to cotton.
Tencel is naturally breathable, has no-shrinkage is highly durable and has a cooling effect. Polyester sports fabrics are all treated with chemicals for the moisture management (fast drying), anti—bacterial treatment (stops body odours embedding into the fabric0 and to keep you feeling cool. Tencel does all of this naturally and these benefits do not wash out over time like with polyester.
