Viscose is a regenerated cellulose fibre, which is strong, durable and comfortable. This makes it a key fibre to use in producing corporate wear, as clothes may be worn on a regular basis for up to 2 years.
Viscose is abrasion resistant, yet soft to handle and has good drape properties. It is breathable and absorbent, which adds to its comfort.
Viscose tends to be weak when wet and is prone to shrinking. Like polyester, viscose can pill and snag more easily than other fibres and can have a shiny appearance.
End of life possibilities:
As it is 100% cellulose, viscose is biodegradable. It also has potential for reuse and remanufacture and should not be sent to landfill.
