A high-modulus, dimensionally stable rayon staple fiber. It is a natural fibre originating from wood pulp, cellulose and rayon. Finer quality than the regular rayon yarns, it has high resistance to stretching under wet conditions. Used blended with other yarns in modern and sophisticated fabrics. Often found combined with high quality microfibre yarn to create a very luxurious microfibre garment.
