Tencel (or Lyocell) is a very fine high lustre fibre derived from wood pulp which has been harvested from managed forests. It feels similar to white silk thereby needing a little more twist than wool when spinning. Tencel fibre is breathable, absorbent and biodegradable and exceeds the strength of cotton when wet.
It can be blended with other fibres to add lustre to them, a blend with wool can be dyed after hand spinning if you want subtle variations.
Dye this cellulose fibre with Procion MX dyes or Indigo, or mordant with Aluminium Acetate or Titanium Oxalate when dyeing with Natural Dyes.
Worked with a felting needle, tencel can be felted into three dimensional objects. 100g bag.
