->Lyocell staple fibers show no cytotoxicity meaning improved proliferation of human cells can be expected.

Washing and bleaching durability of yarn
  • After 100 washing cycles at 60°C even 60 % of the initial tocopherol content can be detected.
  • Reactive dyeing lowers the content to ca. 70 %, after 100 washing cycles of dyed yarn contains ca. 40 % of initial tocopherol.
