For this bodycon dress, the TENCEL™ Lyocell/Merino wool blend is our fabric of choice. Tencel™ is made from renewable wood sources and Merino wool comes from the Merino sheep, which is known for it's finest and softest wool. When mixed together, this blend's luxurious look and unparalleled comfort set it apart from the rest.
TENCEL™ Lyocell is known for the following:
- Silky smoothness: creates a pleasant, almost soothing feeling on the skin
- Superior breathability: absorbs and releases moisture efficiently, thus supporting body's natural temperature regulation
- Color vibrancy: smooth surface of fibers allows color dyes to remain deep in the fiber structure, resulting in impressive color brilliance
- Color longevity: significantly less prone to fade, even after repeated washing
Merino Wool is known for the following:
- Luxury wool: regarded as the finest softest wool of any sheep
- Superior breathability: allows air to escape through it's microscopic holes in its fibers
- Odor resistance: effectively manages moisture, which prevents bacteria from thriving thus preventing odor
We require that all of our fabrics come from environmentally sustainable sources as conservation and preservation are at the core of our values.
For this bodycon dress, we use the TENCEL™ Lyocell / Merino Wool premium blend for the outer layer and recycled nylon for the inner mesh lining.
