(pronounced TEHN-sehl)

No, we’re not talking about tinsel, the strings of shiny faux icicles used at Christmas. This is Tencel®, the registered trade name for a type of lyocell, a biodegradable material made from wood pulp cellulose. One can also use the term Tencel to describe the fabric made from said natural fiber, which is environmentally friendly, versatile, soft and durable, and can be blended with other fibers such as linen, cotton and wool.
