About Our Tencel Sheets & Pillowcases
There’s a lot to consider when it comes to buying a new set of linens. With so many materials and styles to choose from, some options will suit you better than others. Tencel sheets and pillowcases are for you if you want a feel that’s cooler than cotton and luxuriously soft.
Tencel is a brand name describing rayon or lyocell. It’s a fairly new innovation in sheets and pillowcases, being first developed in 1972. Rather than being woven out of fibers from the cotton plant, Tencel fibers are created from the pulp of eucalyptus wood. These fibers are then woven together to create an extremely strong, yet incredibly smooth, fabric that’s naturally cool to the touch.

What is Tencel fabric made of?
Tencel is a fiber made from the wood pulp of trees that are grown and replaced on specialized tree farms. Most often, these are eucalyptus trees. Unlike most cellulosic fabrics, Tencel is produced using recyclable, Earth-friendly solvents. When blended with cotton, Tencel adds wrinkle-resistance and the lustrous feel of silk.
What are Tencel sheets?
Tencel sheets are made from the wood cellulose of Eucalyptus trees. This smooth fabric feels silky soft and has a sheen to it. Its origin from the pulp of Eucalyptus wood makes Tencel sheets naturally cooling. The fibers are super absorbent, so they are an excellent choice for hot sleepers.
