I'm not vegan, but I do try to avoid unnecessary animal cruelty when I can, so I avoid silk pillowcases. However, satin pillowcases are made of polyester fiber (AKA) plastic and I've been looking for a sustainable alternative to keep my hair and skin happy at night. I finally found something promising that I was excited to share!! I found these 100% bamboo lyocell pillowcases that are a sateen weave (meaning that they mimic silk/satin) and are ethically and sustainably made on Ettitude!! Just wanted to share because I know that everyone generally tries to go for more environmentally friendly options once they know about them, and I've never seen anyone talk about this in online curly girl communities 🐣❤️
4-piece sheet set of 100% long-staple cotton sateen and Bamboo Lyocell both at $69 with code NEWGUESTS.

Hi, I am about to get back on the road and I'm looking for another shirt.
I have a "Wanaka" from REI that is my favorite shirt ever, but they don't sell it anymore. It's 61% nylon, 35% Lyocell, 4% spandex, which I've found to be perfect.
It's a very cool blend, and I'm a pretty hot guy (thermically speaking, anyway). It dries so quickly I can just wear it into the shower, hang it up for a few hours, and wear it again. (If you keep moving, nobody notices you're wearing the same shirt everyday, you know?)
It was a little expensive, but now I wish I'd bought a few at once. It looks good enough to be in town, offices, or restaurants, but I can wear it up the side of a mountain and it's been very durable against thorns and snags.
What are your favorite shirts? Do you know of anything made of a similar blend?
I have had 100% cotton denim jackets from Levi's before, I wonder if anyone knows how it feel when the materials are 76% cotton and 24% Tencel Lyocell
Thinking of crocheting coasters as presents from Tencel yarn. Would they hold up to the heat from beverages placed on them over time?
Hey guys, I've been browsing the online shops lately and found a fabric I've never heard of: tencel. I've read into it and it seems it is used for anything but coats...until I found this coat at Zara today: https://www.zara.com/us/en/asymmetrical-collar-coat-p05784630.html
It is basically a third tencel, a third wool and a third polyamide. My question is what different properties to expect from such a blend compared to other more common blends. I've never seen anything like it. Is it be more cool/warm? Does it wrinkle? Anything is appreciated!
I need new sheets and this Sheets and Giggles brand looks like an ethical, lower-waste company to buy from, but I’ve never heard of lyocell before.
Can someone with more textile knowledge than me let me know if I’m just being duped by their clever marketing copy and feel-good donation model, or if this is actually a more sustainable choice?
I have a question in regards to a fabric that I hope you can help with!
I have been reading extensively about the many beneficial qualities of Tencel /Lyocell.
I am looking to produce some active wear t-shirts made out of a blend of Tencel, cotton and maybe some elastane.Do any of you have any experience with these types of blends and are they recommendable for the purpose of active wear?
Are there any specific blends and ratios that you think could be particularly beneficial for the purpose of activewear?
Any help and tips are much appreciated. Thank you!
I have a pair of navy blue pants I bought abroad: 56% Viscose 44% Lyocell. I hand washed them in cold water with Biokleen. Even so they lost a lot of color, and something mysteriously completely bleached out the color in 2 spots.
I tried another online suggestion of coloring in the spots with a Navy Blue Sharpie but it doesn't look great because of the general color loss, the sharpie is darker than the pants now.
Is there any way to salvage? Washing instructions: 30 degrees. Meaning I don't think I can boil the pants with RIT dye... too hot, yes? Would Jacquard Procion MX Fiber Reactive Cold Water Dye work? No idea. I would like to restore these pants, I loved them. Help appreciated.
What is the best bed sheets material? I know 100% cotton (egyptian or pima preferably) is good, but, bamboo seems to have more advantages (antibacterial, moisture wicking, better for envir., etc)... How does it compare in durability and softness?
I can find only one company making bamboo "lyocell" bed sheets, its in australia and pretty expensive: ettitude 100% bamboo lyocell bed sheets Is it worth the price? does it last much longer than regular bamboo viscose / rayon? or egyptian cotton?
How does eucalyptus / tencel compare in all this? ...
Note: Im in canada, so, it gets cold, and also hot sometimes. I like to sleep cool, but not cold.
I'm looking for a new set of bed sheets, but the only information I can find online is that Polyester and Microfiber/Synthetic fabrics will resist staining from using BP. Nothing about whether Tencel/Lyocell stains.
Trying to avoid synthetics as they are a major source of micro-plastics in the ocean. Also trying to avoid white sheets, but I'm tired of my pillowcases gathering pink splotches.
Anybody have experience?
