Viscose


Viscose is the most ‘natural’ of all chemical fibres. It is made of regenerated cellulose (usually obtained from beeches or spruces or non-spinnable cotton) and turned into lightweight, soft flowing materials. The cellulose is dissolved into a spinning mass and turns back into pure cellulose when solid without any chemical changes. Depending on the shine, fineness and gathering, the viscose can lend garments a ‘Silk’, ‘Cotton’ or ‘Wool’ look. Viscose is absorbable cotton, but is not very tear-resistant and durable in a wet condition.
Clothing made of viscose can usually be washed on a gentle cycle at 30°C. Do not spin, or spin gently and hang up wet. Always observe the care instructions in the garment.
