The TENCEL® fibre is a round cross-section with a smooth surface so when combined with the fine soft fibres of merino, it creates an incredibly comfortable soft fabric with beautiful drape.


Encourages evaporation to cool and dry. TENCEL® fibre is smooth and dry on the outside and holds moisture in its core, keeping the fabric dry to touch. The TENCEL® microfibres wick moisture through the fibre.


Bacterial growth on TENCEL® fibres is lower than on synthetic fibres, so unpleasant odour is minimized. TENCEL® also offers the best climate between textile and skin so the skin bacteria stays in balance.


TENCEL® is derived from the wood pulp of sustainably farmed eucalyptus trees. It’s also eco-friendly, thanks to the closed loop system where 99.5–99.8% of the solvent used to make TENCEL® is recycled.

By combining two natural fibres, merino and TENCEL®, this revolutionary fabric helps you move actively with a cooler and drier feeling.
