Tencel™ Lyocell vs. Cotton

Tencel™ Lyocell t-shirts are becoming increasingly popular among environmentally-conscious consumers, and for good reason. Tencel ™ Lyocell is a type of fabric made from wood pulp, typically from eucalyptus trees, which are rapidly renewable and require less water and pesticides to grow compared to cotton. In addition, the production process of lyocell is more sustainable than that of cotton, as it uses fewer chemicals and produces less waste and emissions.

But the benefits of tencel™ lyocell t-shirts go beyond their environmental impact. Lyocell is also softer, more breathable, and more moisture-wicking than cotton, making it a more comfortable and functional option for everyday wear. It is also less prone to shrinking, fading, and wrinkling, and has a smoother and more lustrous appearance than cotton.

Furthermore, tencel™ lyocell is a more sustainable choice in the long run, as it is more durable and long-lasting than cotton. This means that lyocell t-shirts will retain their shape, color, and quality for a longer time, reducing the need for frequent replacements and reducing the overall environmental footprint of the clothing industry.

In conclusion, tencel™lyocell t-shirts are a superior choice to cotton t-shirts for their environmental sustainability, comfort, functionality, and durability. By choosing tencel™ lyocell, consumers can not only feel good about their clothing choices, but also support a more sustainable and responsible fashion industry. - "Nero Cento decided to combine the best of both worldsOur aparel consist 67% of TencelLyocell and 33% of Cotton, and that's why it is going to be the softest and most premium T-Shirt on your Skin, ever!" Tom Baldinger, Co-Founder & CEO
