Viscose is a semi-synthetic fibre made from re-constituted plant cellulose. It can also be referred to as Rayon. It can be woven into many different types of fabric (including challis and twill) but is most commonly found as a plain weave. It has amazing moisture absorbancy and should be handled with care when wet to avoid damaging the fibres. It has a naturally silky appearance and is great for dressmaking projects where a fabric with good drape is required. Pre-wash all viscose/rayon fabrics to remove any initial shrinkage.
