Highly breathable and anti-bacterial.
The extraction process of eucalyptus fibre is quite similar to the bamboo one. For its production, CORA Happywear chooses a eucalyptus fibre from Lenzing - the Tencel - which is obtained through a very sustainable process. The eucalyptus tree wood is smashed to get the pulp, which is processed through multiple steps. The first one is dipping it in a solution of water and N-methylmorpholine-N-oxide (being less damaging, it replaces the sulfuric acid). This step is done in order to obtain the so-called viscose, which is then pressed on paper-thin nozzles and dipped into a basin, filled with a solution of water and N-methylmorpholine-N-oxide, it hardens the viscose and turns it back into pulp from eucalyptus.
Eventually, the fibres are spun to obtain yarn. This process is completely sustainable and beneficial to the environment: the solvents and water used in the process are 100% recovered and reintroduced into it (closed-loop process).
Rapid growth, no use of chemical products.
Production process with very low environmental impact.
