Lyocell is a form of rayon, which consists of cellulose fibre made from dissolving pulp (bleached wood pulp) using dry jet-wet spinning. It was developed beginning in 1972 by a team at the now defunct American Enka fibers facility at Enka, North Carolina.
This eco-fabric has natural breathability and 50% greater moisture absorption than cotton. Due to its moisture management, lyocell is also anti-bacterial. Similar to rayon in feel.
