Meet Our Sustainable Eco-Friendly Fabrics

At Wrapped, we gather the best quality, softest sustainable eco-friendly fabrics available. Most of our fabrics are sourced in the United States. Our Signature Cloud Fabric is made from TENCEL. Most of our scarves and wraps are made from Modal. Our Signature Linen Collection is made from Lyocell. 

What is Modal?

TENCEL™ Modal fabric is a bio-based fabric that is made from spinning beech tree cellulose. Modal is generally considered a more eco-friendly alternative to cotton because beech trees don’t require much water to grow and therefore the production process uses about 10-20 times less water.
Why We Love Modal?  
The fiber produced from Beech trees is incredibly soft and feels like silk when worn - it has twice the softness of cotton and feels amazing against your skin.

Modal fabric is extremely hard-wearing and keeps its shape and finish, even after frequent washing. Its silky texture also makes it comfortable for close-fitting intimate wear and is breathable. Unlike garments made from synthetic fIberia like nylon and polyester, Modal does not trap perspiration and odors.

Modal is up to 50 percent more absorbent than cotton, so clothes never feel sweaty and sticky. Modal is completely biodegradable.

 What is Lyocell?

Lyocell, a more sustainable choice than nylon, polyester and even cotton is made from wood cellulose or pulp, its soft-to-the-touch finish, eco credibilities and durability make it a firm favourite with both brands and customers. The wood is harvested and ground into a pulp and mixed with a chemical which leaves a sticky liquid. This is then filtered and pumped through spinnerets - thimble-shaped devices used to form fabric strands - resulting in long, thin fibers. 

Why We Love Lyocell?

Biodegradable: TENCEL™ Lyocell has been certified as biodegradable and compostable.

Breathable: As lyocell is derived from natural sources, the fibers are structured to regulate the absorption and release of moisture which helps to ensure the fabric is not only breathable but supports the body’s natural temperature. 

Anti-bacterial: The lack of moisture being absorbed by the fabric means that it is harder for bacteria to grow, meaning you are less likely to sweat than if you were wearing polyester, nylon or cotton. 

Gentle on the skin: Not only is TENCEL™ Lyocell extremely soft but its smooth fibers make it a great choice for those with sensitive skin. 

Drapes beautifully: lyocell drapes beautifully, creating a flattering silhouette.
