You know I never knew what Tencel was until I looked it up. I thought nothing could compare to silk sheets but I was wrong. I got my sheets in the Hot Pink color. The stock photo does not really look like the sheets I got in my opinion so try not to go by that. They actually look a whole lot better in person. The color is rich and vibrant. It's like a dark pink and what would my boyfriend describe as very girly looking. It really looks cool if you accent it with another black blanket over it or with black pillows. These sheets are unbelievably comfortable. They are so smooth and unlike anything I have ever felt before in my life. The first night sleeping in these sheets were like heaven for the both of us. I usually wake up in the middle of the night but I slept right through with these. The sheets are very breathable as well. Tencel is definitely my favorite type of material right now for bedding. #AuthenticTencelBedSheetSet

Tencel is a natural, man made fibre which is also referred to as Lyocell.
Made with wood pulp from sustainable tree farms, tencel textiles are created though the use of nanotechnology in an award-winning closed-loop process that recovers or decomposes all solvents and emissions.
Though it’s certified by the international Forest Stewardship Council and 100% biodegradable, perhaps the greatest benefits are the variety and exceptional comfort you can experience with tencel clothing.
Advantages of Tencel Fabric
- Eco Print
Made from the natural cellulose found in wood pulp. The fiber is economical in its use of energy and natural resources, and is fully biodegradable.
- Colour Rich
Tencel was created with color in mind, because of the fibers’ high absorbency. The fabrics can be dyed to high quality standards.
- Moisture Absorbent
This eco fabric has natural breathability and 50% greater moisture absorption than cotton.
Due to its moisture management, Tencel is also anti-bacterial.
- Feel of Fabric
Similar to rayon in feel. Soft, breathable, lightweight and comfortable. Tencel has an extremely smooth, soft surface that drapes beautifully to flatter every figure.
- Great for sensitive skin
Tencel’s smooth fibre surface feels soft and supple against the skin and its incredible wicking abilities keep the skin dry, making Tencel a great fabric for sensitive skin.
This eco fabric has controllable fibrillation (the very fine hairs found on the outer fibres), which can be manipulated into everything form suede-like softness to a silky smooth finish.
This super fibre can hold up to a beating when both we and dry, and is most conveniently resistant to wrinkles.
Caring for your Tencel Fabric
- Delicate fabrics may be hand-washed in cold water with a gentle detergent. Drip dry. Tencel will shrink about 3% with the first washing, and will resist shrinking from then on.
- Machine washing, using the gentle cycle, is appropriate for many garments (read the garment care label), and drip drying is preferable to machine drying. If line dried, you can briefly toss in the dryer with a damp towel to soften the fabric.
- If you must touch up the garment with an iron, use a warm iron only. Too much direct heat may scorch the fabric.
