Virgin fibre

Virgin fibres never made into the fabric before, primarily used for wool fibres (virgin wool), to differentiate between these and reclaimed, reprocessed, and reused fibres.



Viscose or rayon is an artificial fibre, made from wood pulp, which on the face of it seems more sustainable. However, often the tree planted is eucalyptus, which draws up large amounts of water, causing problems in sensitive landscapes.
