When it comes to these two fabrics, how do they compare? Characteristics such as getting rid of odour, durability, moisture-absorbing, moisture-wicking, breathability are the ones I am looking for.
But if there are other important traits I miss, please let me know.
I'm new to the world of fabric dyeing, I've never done it before (aside from pre-prepared tie-dye) and was wondering if I could get some advice. I have a pair of well-loved light brown pants, and I'm not loving the colour. I'm wanting to dye them a darker brown. I hope this is an okay place to post this? if not, if you could please direct me to somewhere better?
The material is 54% cotton and 46% lyocell (from the tag) I've done a bit of research online and I've gathered that it should be okay to use normal cotton dye, but I wanted to double check with some people who know what they're doing first, because I don't want to waste money on dye that wont work. (I tried to tie dye something with cotton dye once that wasn't 100% cotton and the colour washed out completely when I went to rinse it- I'm afraid of this happening again!)
If you think this would be okay- is Rit Dye a good dye brand? I've done another search and it seems like this is the main dye available at stores in my area!
Thank you so much in advance for any advice or suggestions you may have, I really look forward to some input!
I bought these a week ago:
Washed in cold water, air dried. No pilling when I set them. After two nights I noticed they weren't as soft and discovered they're pilling everywhere. I used a fabric shaver and removed everything but it came right back after a few more nights. This is a lot of maintenance. I do sleep naked. I know lyocell can pill, but they should be adding something more to prevent it from pilling so easily? I spent a lot on these sheets, and am wondering if this is normal or a result of poor quality lyocell.
Your Eudae stuff is cool (absolutely love my One-Bag pieces) but I still feel bad about participating in purchasing of plastics when there are other, very viable alternatives. Needless to say, I've been real happy with the Stretch Terry products and would love to see you guys come up with some boxer briefs in a similar fabric.
I've been doing a fair amount of research looking for new bedding. Eucalyptus seems like a nice option however all the popular brands (read as well marketed) seem to be fairly prone to wear and tear. Sijo, Sheets & G's, Buffy(expensive), etc etc. They're all lyocell/tencel I believe and it's been really difficult to find an accurate review that isn't sponsored.
Does anyone have personal experience with these sheets over a longer period of time? Or would anyone be able to recommend a suitable alternative that isn't Sijo/ Sheets & G's?
I'm open to all suggestions!
I have to calculate the energy amount (evaporation) for recycling the NMMO in the spinning bath.
But anybody know why the NMMO concentration goes down? Is there water added?
I know the spinning solution have normal 20/80 w/w NMMO to water. Is the solvent concentration decreasibg over time ?
Thx for help
Does anybody know how good Viscose and Lyocell is compared to cotton and wool? I love the feeling of the material. In my experience it dries quickly and does not hold smells very well.
Hey, Does anyone know a good place to buy Lyocell in the UK?I’ve had a look at a few sites but they sell it in a blend with cotton Etc.. I‘m looking for a site that sells both modal and lyocell 100% or with only spandex blended. Ideally with the option of getting swatches first but at this point I’ll take a roll
Hi, I am about to get back on the road and I'm looking for another shirt.
I have a "Wanaka" from REI that is my favorite shirt ever, but they don't sell it anymore. It's 61% nylon, 35% Lyocell, 4% spandex, which I've found to be perfect.
It's a very cool blend, and I'm a pretty hot guy (thermically speaking, anyway). It dries so quickly I can just wear it into the shower, hang it up for a few hours, and wear it again. (If you keep moving, nobody notices you're wearing the same shirt everyday, you know?)
It was a little expensive, but now I wish I'd bought a few at once. It looks good enough to be in town, offices, or restaurants, but I can wear it up the side of a mountain and it's been very durable against thorns and snags.
What are your favorite shirts? Do you know of anything made of a similar blend?
I'm not vegan, but I do try to avoid unnecessary animal cruelty when I can, so I avoid silk pillowcases. However, satin pillowcases are made of polyester fiber (AKA) plastic and I've been looking for a sustainable alternative to keep my hair and skin happy at night. I finally found something promising that I was excited to share!! I found these 100% bamboo lyocell pillowcases that are a sateen weave (meaning that they mimic silk/satin) and are ethically and sustainably made on Ettitude!! Just wanted to share because I know that everyone generally tries to go for more environmentally friendly options once they know about them, and I've never seen anyone talk about this in online curly girl communities 🐣❤️
I just purchased pants that are 65% cotton, 33% lyocell, and 2% spandex. I have been frustrated recently with a few pairs of pants I bought that fit perfectly at first, but become super unflatteringly baggy within a few hours of wear. Most of these pants were 98% cotton and 2% spandex. Will the lyocell blend make these new pants more likely to get baggy or more likely to maintain their shape? I am not familiar with the material. Thank you.

I have this shirt/dress made of 100% lyocell and it doesn't have any stretch to it so I figured it would take iron on patches well enough but wanted to make sure.
What is the best bed sheets material? I know 100% cotton (egyptian or pima preferably) is good, but, bamboo seems to have more advantages (antibacterial, moisture wicking, better for envir., etc)... How does it compare in durability and softness?
I can find only one company making bamboo "lyocell" bed sheets, its in australia and pretty expensive: ettitude 100% bamboo lyocell bed sheets Is it worth the price? does it last much longer than regular bamboo viscose / rayon? or egyptian cotton?
How does eucalyptus / tencel compare in all this? ...
Note: Im in canada, so, it gets cold, and also hot sometimes. I like to sleep cool, but not cold.
Hey guys, I've been browsing the online shops lately and found a fabric I've never heard of: tencel. I've read into it and it seems it is used for anything but coats...until I found this coat at Zara today: https://www.zara.com/us/en/asymmetrical-collar-coat-p05784630.html
It is basically a third tencel, a third wool and a third polyamide. My question is what different properties to expect from such a blend compared to other more common blends. I've never seen anything like it. Is it be more cool/warm? Does it wrinkle? Anything is appreciated!
I need new sheets and this Sheets and Giggles brand looks like an ethical, lower-waste company to buy from, but I’ve never heard of lyocell before.
Can someone with more textile knowledge than me let me know if I’m just being duped by their clever marketing copy and feel-good donation model, or if this is actually a more sustainable choice?
I have this shirt/dress made of 100% lyocell and it doesn't have any stretch to it so I figured it would take iron on patches well enough but wanted to make sure. I've tried to find the answer online though I don't see much DIY info on lyocell at all :(
