TENCEL® deals with moisture like no other. The fiber absorbs moisture completely and naturally and then releases it to the outside.
A turbo force in moisture absorption
Optimum in moisture transportation
TENCEL® has a unique fibril structure. Fibrils (extremely small hairs) are the tiniest components which make up the fiber. Submicroscopic channels between the individual fibrils regulate absorption and release of moisture. Thus, these tiny fibrils assure the optimum transportation of moisture.
A comparison gives confidence
Best moisture management
Compared to synthetic fibers, the optimum moisture transportation of TENCEL® is unique. The fibril structure of the fiber helps create an optimal skin climate due to the superior moisture absorption. Synthetic fibers do not absorb any moisture as the comparison shows.
However, TENCEL® really stands out when compared with cotton. Compared to cotton, TENCEL® absorbs the moisture in a controlled and regular manner. With TENCEL® a 50 % improvement in moisture management was measured.*
