50% pima cotton, 50% Tencel
Tencel is a biodegradable man-made fiber derived from wood pulp, a renewable resource. The pulp is harvested from trees that have been planted on land unsuitable for food crops or grazing. The process used to turn wood pulp into yarn is environmentally friendly. In what is referred to as a “closed loop” system, the solvent used to produce Tencel is continually reused, thus minimizing the amount of water and energy needed to produce new fiber.
Tencel creates a fabric that is soft and silky, strong, cool, and absorbent. In Premiere, Tencel is blended with equal parts pima cotton. The blend of these two fibers creates a strong and soft yarn with a subtle halo.
