Widely used in Sealy mattresses, Tencel is their fibre of choice. Tencel is made from natural cellulose found in wood pulp. Cellulose is the natural polymer that makes up the living cells of all vegetation.
One of the key properties of Tencel is its ability to fibrilate. Fibrillation is where the wet fibre, through abrasive action, develops micro-fibrils on the surface of the fibre. Varying amounts of fibrillation create different finishes to the fabric. The surface fibres of what would be considered standard Tencel are fibrillated to produce a sumptuous, soft fabric with an almost peach skin feel and appearance.
Sealy mattress covers are woven with tencel. This strong fibre, whether wet or dry has a high absorbency factor and aids the removal of excess body moisture when sleeping. It is a wonderfully soft fabric, breathable, lightweight, comfortable and luxurious to touch. No wonder top bed manufacturers like Sealy beds use Tencel in their mattresses.
