Plentiful Poppies is a gorgeous lightweight Tencel lawn. A classic lawn weight with sumptuously soft drape and hand, you'd be forgiven for thinking that this was silk. Featuring a print that is painterly sketched in style, adorned by the lifecycle of poppies: from sprigs and closed buds, to full flowers and wilting heads.
Filled with an uplifting summery colour palette of classic Oriental poppy tones: warm orange, red and soft pink, with touches of lemon yellow, light blue and washed lilac throughout, hosted on a backdrop of off-white / soft cream.
This superb Tencel has all the softness and cool summer vibes you could wish for. A soft and fine fabric that is more resistant to creases, easy wear easy care.
About Loyocell / Tencel:
If viscose / rayon is the first-generation cellulose fibres, modal is the second generation and is known for its softness, with lyocell being the now third-generation technology, its properties are simply amazing. Modern textiles!
Unlike other man-made fibres, rayon, modal, and lyocell are not synthetic. They are made from cellulose, commonly derived from wood pulp, and more recently from bamboo. They are neither truly synthetic fibres (in the sense of synthetics coming from petroleum) nor natural fibres (in the sense of processing fibres that are produced directly from plants or animals, such as wool).
"Lyocell production does not use harmful chemicals "The skin is the largest human respiratory organ. Lyocell supports the natural ability of the skin to act as a protective shell to regulate body temperature and maintain water balance. The microscopic surfaces of lyocell fibres, due to the nanofibrils, are smoother than the surfaces of modal, cotton and wool. It is the combination of this extremely smooth surface of lyocell and excellent moisture absorption that makes lyocell textiles feel so soft and pleasant to the skin.
Ideal for creating soft comfortable blouses, flowing dresses, cute skirts, tops, kaftans, jumpsuits and holiday wear.
