Pioneering wood-based fabric displayed in Finland

Written by John Mowbray

HELSINKI – A new wood-based fabric was recently displayed for the first time in which textile engineers claim to have designed a novel way to make cellulosic textile fibres using a unique wet extrusion process based on the flow properties (rheology) of a modified, aqueous wood fibre slurry. It is claimed that no harmful chemicals or energy and water-consuming steps are required as in the viscose process, meaning the environmental footprint is much smaller than in the case of the polymer or cotton fibre processes.
