Tencel is a fine fibre derived from the cellulose fibre of plants. It adds a lightness, drape, and shine, to fibre blends, similar to viscose but made in a more sustainable process.
Hemp fibre is one of the many items sourced from the amazing hemp plant. The fibre itself comes from the stem of the plant, while the seeds can be eaten as food and the oil can be used for many applications. Like many plant fibres, hemp brings a dry, cool hand to blends. Since it is a cellulose fibre, acid dyes do not adhere to hemp. This creates a heather like appearance when blends including hemp are dyed. Hemp also adds a rustic look and beautiful lightness to the yarn.
