This superb, Tencel and cotton blend does have the look of a linen blend but all the softness of Tencel
This blended fabric gives you the benefits of both wonderful naturally derived fibres. Cotton blended with Tencel/lyocell produces a softer, finer fabric which results in fewer creases when worn, which in turn makes it easier to iron.
If Viscose and Rayon are the first-generation cellulose fibres Modal is the second generation and is known for its softness and lyocell is now third-generation technology, its properties are amazing.
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."

This fabric is amazing quality. I purchased it to make some sleepwear which is finished and in use - I love it. I have ordered some more in one of the other designs to make a dress and will probably order again. One of the best fabrics I have purchased for this price. If I could give it more than five stars I would!
This fabric is lovely light feel to it so will be beautiful to wear.
It's light weight and pretty much fully opaque.
This will make a beautiful shirt or dress for the summer weather.
Really good value for money too!
