Viscose fibres are natural man-made fibres: they consist of cellulose, the main component of plant cell walls, and are further processed using chemical techniques. This makes viscose a real niche product, it is neither a pure natural fibre due to its chemical processing, nor 100% synthetic because it is made from natural building blocks.
The filaments of viscose can be used to make a wide variety of types of fabric, ranging from wool to linen. Characteristic is its special fibre fineness and that it is not elastic, which is why garments are very light and fall fluently. Viscose is also very soft, absorbent and permeable to air. Its natural component makes garments more skin-friendly than synthetic fabrics.
Care: Viscose garments should by no means be placed in the dryer or centrifuged. This is why the classic gentle wash cycle between 30 and 40°C is recommended, in the best case with a washing net, as the viscose fibres are very sensitive when wet. Of course, in case of doubt you should always follow the washing instructions or ask the manufacturer.
