Modern Deco is a luxurious blend of combed targhee wool and tencel. It is available in a luscious 3-Ply sport blend and a 2-ply lace blend. This smooth fiber is known for the glorious sheen and drape it gives to sweaters and accessories.
Plant fibers are known for making comfortable, breathable garments that can face off with the roller coaster of Mother Nature's mood swings. Cotton and linen blends are popular plant-based yarns with good reason. However, there's something even better and it's exactly what we use to create Modern Deco.
The secret ingredient is Lyocell (aka Tencel), a fiber sourced from sustainably farmed eucalyptus. When compared to cotton, Lyocell is both more comfortable and more eco-friendly. Take a look at how they compare:
- Lyocell is 50% MORE absorbent than cotton
- Less susceptible to odors
- Uses less energy to make
- Uses less water to make
- Shrinks less
- Wrinkles less
- Is 100% biodegradable
- Produces a supersoft fabric
- Tends to get softer with every wash
- Is increasingly the eco-conscience choice for sustainable fashion
Tencel can be as soft as silk and significantly softer than cotton. It's more breathable and more recyclable than cotton too. The quality we find most fascinating though? Lyocell is temperature regulating. Essentially, "Smart Yarn." Keeping you cool on hot days and warm on cool days.
