Katia Tencel-Cotton is made of 76% Lyocell, a biodegradable fiber created in an eco-sustainable way. Lyocell is obtained by the chemical decomposition of cellulose or wooden pulp, which later becomes thread through extrusion, making it one of the easiest to knit yarns. In the production of Lyocell, no by-products that are harmful to health or the environment are produced.
Tencel is a trademarked Lyocell; the laboratory that created it managed to process the cellulose from the eucalyptus tree, which has a great capacity to absorb moisture. Due to its raw material origin, this Lyocell is also highly breathable, ideal for summer garments.
Lyocell is a thread with a soft and silky surface and has excellent properties for sensitive skins. Blended with cotton, that makes that Katia Tencel-Cotton skeins produce light, comfortable, soft, and highly resistant garments.
To knit a short-sleeved sweater in size L, you will need around 8 skeins of Katia Tencel-Cotton. Remember that this is only an estimation and that your own tension, chosen stitch, and kind of pattern may modify this calculation. A tension swatch will help you to get a more accurate number.
