Rayon is a by-product of the wood industry that is chemically changed and extruded in fibers that are twisted into threads and woven. Our pure rayons from Indonesia come from fast growing woods that are specifically grown and harvested for this purpose. Rayon has many characteristics of natural fibers, but it is called a man-made fiber because it does not exist in nature. The soft, versatile cellulose fiber is highly absorbent and dyes to radiant colors with our Fiber Reactive (Procion) dye. It drapes beautifully and is extremely comfortable to wear, being especially good for warm weather. It has one peculiar feature, which is that it weakens when wet, so should be washed and handled very gently when wet. When it dries, its strength is restored.
Remember, bolts vary! They can be over or under - we charge you for the actual yardage. If you need very specific yardage, order cut yardage.
