Why We Love Lyocell

Here at Lavender Hill, quality sustainable fabrics are in our DNA. In fact, when founder Isobel started the business back in 2013, this was one of the most important factors for her.

Every fabric we use is natural, biodegradable and from only the highest quality sources, with total transparency throughout the production process. You may be familiar with our core fabric, TencelTM Modal, an incredibly soft fibre created from the pulp of beech trees. TencelTM Lyocell is a similar concept, and is also derived from fast-growing trees such as beech, eucalyptus and oak. To read more about the process,click here.

Most of our loungewear and activewear is made from lyocell, and there’s a reason for this! Not only is does lyocell have antibacterial properties, making it great for when you’re working up a sweat, it’s also incredibly breathable and of course, super soft.

Here are three of our favourite lyocell pieces that are the perfect addition to your activewear wardrobe:

Tapered Yoga Trousers

The reviews speak for themselves! Our high waisted, tapered yoga trousers are hailed for their comfort. Their soft, stretchy feel makes them ideal for your yoga class (or coffee and cake, if that’s more your thing!)

Style them with one of our classic t-shirts for your class, then throw on a wool coat and trainers afterwards for an errand-ready athleisure look.

Patterned Tank Top

A new addition to the collection this season is our patterned tank top. A relaxed fitting lyocell vest that, worn with leggings, will keep you cool and comfy during that exercise class. Alternatively, style under our luxury navy tracksuit or with our tapered yoga trousers for ultimate sporty comfort.

Your exercise class is over, you’re a little clammy and heading home for a shower. Pop our luxuriously soft hoodie over your workout gear (may we remind you of its antibacterial properties - don’t worry about odour!) and feel confident grabbing a well-earned pastry on your way home!
