Tencel is a wonderfully versatile fabric. It has lovely softness + fluid drape. It is known for being lightweight, breathable + very comfortable to wear. These qualities make it perfect for use in the same way you would traditionally use a rayon or viscose.
Given that it often has a little more weight than a rayon or viscose, it falls beautifully + has become my go to for dresses, shirts + skirts. Another quality that we love is it's opacity. Perfect for pieces that you don't wish to line. It really is very soft + feels quite luxurious to wear.
It handles similarly to a rayon / viscose, without being too slippery under the machine. It gathers beautifully and we've found it holds its press really well, which is great for preparing hems + making bias tape. We do suggest using a press cloth or ironing this fabric on reverse to avoid any pressing sheen.
Our tencel has a fine twill weave, giving it a very subtle texture.
