Perfect for the Tee Shirt & Factory patterns.

Oeko-Tex certified. 6% shrinkage with first wash. Wash on cool/delicate with a gentle spin. Do not tumble dry. Shake out & lay flat to dry.
Eco credentials: The process of Tencel production ameliorates much of its own environmental effects. Like cotton, Tencel is made from plant materials. However, manufacturing Tencel requires less energy & water than cotton. The solvents used to turn the wood pulp into fiber are contained in a closed loop system, with a quoted recovery rate of 99%. As a naturally derived fiber, Tencel is also biodegradable. Although it is dyed conventionally (which can be harmful to the environment), Tencel requires a lot less dye than cotton. The manufacturers are actively striving towards greener, cleaner, more efficient production and are currently investing in new renewable energy sources.
