Amelia Perez Today, Lenzing AG of Austria owns the Tencel Group and manufactures Lyocell by Lenzing Manufacturing Process of Lyocell Lyocell starts as wood and is turned into a pulp. This pulp is washed with water, and may be bleached. Then, it is dried in a huge sheet, and rolled onto spools. The cellulose is then dissolved and goes through a filtering process where it soaks in solvent. It is then pumped through spinnerets. Then it is immersed in another solution of amine oxide and washed with water. Finally the fiber is dryed lubricant is applied and the fiber is crimped. Carding then takes place. Commercial production began in 1992. Sometimes Lyocell is classified as rayon because it was created to counteract the negative environmental impact of manufacturing rayon and was marketed as a type of rayon. It is often blended with cotton, flax, polyester, wool and spandex. Current uses for Tencel and Lyocell Technology behind Tencel Tencel can be used to immitate many other fibers such as cotton and silk. It is used with other fibers to create blends.
