How to care for your TENCEL™
It is hard to believe that TENCEL™ is made from 100% wood pulp.
Let’s complete the sustainable cycle by washing your TENCEL™ the right way.
First and foremost, always pay attention to the individual care labels to your pieces as what we find most accurate for our TENCEL™ range may not fit other TENCEL™ products from other brands.
- Machine wash cold with like colours (and ideally a full load – the eco way)
- Do not bleach
- Tumble dry low if necessary
- Cool iron if necessary
- Professional Dry Cleaning if necessary
Think low energy
This fabric is very low maintenance. The most important note is that it doesn’t like extreme heat, which is why both washing and drying should be kept to low temperatures. Ironing on high heat will scorch the fabric. Think au naturel.
What we recommend is also to hang the garments dry instead of tumble drying. Not only does this save energy, but gravity will help take most the creases out to reduce the need for ironing – for free! Did we mention that one of the key engineering features of TENCEL™ is that it doesn’t wrinkle easily, besides being extra absorbent and breathable?
Amazing, isn’t it? Basically the perfect fabric to live in, day in day out.
