Select Ridge products include our TENCEL® | Merino wool blend. The smooth TENCEL-branded lyocell fibers are softer than silk and cooler than linen, offering a great complement to Merino’s natural technical performance. Both fibers are more absorbent than cotton and boast antimicrobial properties that reduce odor retention in the fabric.
Eco-friendly TENCEL is made from renewable wood pulp harvested from sustainable forest plantations in an award-winning ecological, "closed loop" process; whereby products are developed with minimum adverse environmental impact, minimum waste generation, and with the most efficient use of water, energy and other resources.
Composed of natural material, TENCEL fibers are biodegradable and compostable and can fully revert back to nature.

"The production of TENCEL fibers is revolutionary... (and) based on a solvent spinning process which represents the greatest achievement in cellulose fiber technology... The unique closed loop process makes TENCEL fibers the fibers of the future since the solvent used is recycled by almost 100% in the process. This special process received the 'European Award for the Environment' from the European Union." - Lenzing AG
