Micro-tech lends more comfort to TENCEL™ fibres

At the Première Vision (Feb 12--14, 2019), Lenzing is presenting TENCEL™ branded lyocell and modal fibres

with micro technology for enhanced comfort. Lenzing is with its fine fibre portfolio an expert in

producing and marketing of Microfibres for the textile industry and gives this speciality fibre category a

new boost.

An increasing number of consumers are choosing clothing for its feel-good factor. Comfort plays a key

role. The parameters of the softness, lightness and smoothness of textiles are critical for the wearer’s

well-being. With its fine fibres based on wood, Lenzing offers the solution for fashion with lots of

comfort.

Lenzing’s fibre portfolio boasts a wide range of fine fibres for the textile and fashion industry. Light

and smooth fabrics can be designed with these fibres which are a major contributor towards the comfort of

the clothing and the wearer’s well-being. TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibres are produced in titers of 1.00

– 0.80 dtex using Micro technology and processed to lightweight fabrics.

“The trend is clearly towards greater comfort. Our fibres produced with Micro technology are the ideal

solution and support this trend. Textiles of fine TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibres feel like a second

skin. The fibres are frequently used in lingerie and luxurious homewear”, explains Andreas Dorner,

Commercial Director Textiles Europe & Americas.

Fine fibres ensure a silky and pleasant feeling on the skin. A clothing of TENCEL™ Lyocell or Modal

fibres, produced with Micro technology, is light on the skin and has a flowing drape. It is defined by

feel-good properties like silkiness, softness and long lasting suppleness. Softness is one of the

determining parameters for well-being. The finer the fibres used in the textiles are, the softer they

become. With TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibres with Micro technology, comfort is supported in different

products.
