Eucalyptus

Fibre made from eucalyptus is called lyocell. it is a plant-base fibre, similar to viscose (most commonly made from bamboo) and modal (most commonly made from beechwood). The differences between viscose, modal and lyocell are subtle. It comes down to the manufacturing process and structure of the filament.

Lyocell production uses a different solvent to extract the cellulose from the wood: sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) is replaced by a non-toxic organic compound. This organic solvent is easier to filter and re-use in a closed loop, which is better for the environment. (Side note: The Austrian firm Lenzing go a step further by only making their lyocell, branded as Tencel®, from fast-growing Eucalyptus trees from sustainably managed forests.)

We suggest you follow the care instructions specific to the yarn you are using and when in doubt hand wash in tepid water using a mild soap. Do not agitate or twist. Lay garment flat on a towel and roll it up like a sleeping bag.  You can let that sit from 15 minutes to the following day to ensure the towel wicks out as much moisture as possible.  Then unroll, place on a clean, dry towel, shape and dry flat.
