Tencel fibers are made out of wood pulp from the Eucalyptus tree, harvested from sustainable forests and made into fibers by means of a chemical heating process. The Eucalyptus tree grows easily and requires little inputs. Päälä only uses Tencel fabrics that have been produced with the patented process from Lenzing. This includes a closed-loop, environmentally friendly system that recycles the chemical input and waste materials. This makes Tencel a fabric with minimal environmental impact.

Tencel is a wonderfully soft fabric that feels nice on the skin. The structure and length of the fiber makes the fabric sturdy, which ensures enjoyment over a longer time. The Tencel fiber is moisture absorbent, has a natural shine and falls gracefully.
