Caption: Lyocell fibres. Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of lyocell fibres. Lyocell is a synthetic fibre based on cellulose, a natural polymer. In the manufacture of lyocell, cellulose pulp is dissolved in a special solvent and then coagulated and spun into a fibre. This process is environmentally friendly. The fibre has the property of breaking up at least partially into tiny microfibres (fibrils). This is known as fibrillation. Lyocell with low fibrillation can be used in clothing as it has a very soft texture. Where a high degree of fibrillation is allowed lyocell can be used as a quality paper substitute. Magnification: x3330 at 10x8 inch size.
