Viscose Noil, what on earth is that again? Ha! It is a fabric variant that is less known in Europe.
We all know viscose fabrics. They are soft and smooth, almost silky. That’s because the fibres are produced industrially. The threads spun from them look almost perfect and uniform. They can be woven tightly together.
What many people don’t know: During the production of the ‘perfect’ fibres, there is also lint and fluff, called ‘noil’. Normally, these remnants would be swept away and disposed of. But since this is no longer fashionable, the ‘waste’ is collected in some spinning mills, mixed with other fibres and spun again into yarns. The combination with linen is particularly popular. It doesn’t take much imagination to understand that these new threads no longer turn out quite so perfectly. The new cloth gets a somewhat coarser, rougher look. But viscose noil only looks like that. In reality, the fabric remains soft and drapy – despite the linen content. In other words: it is a great material, it is more sustainable than normal viscose and it fits perfectly into the autumn-winter season.
We carry ‘our’ viscose noil in eleven attractive shades.
The colour Aragon is a trend colour and can be described as terracotta mixed with pink.
