Lenpur is a novel textile fibre from a renewable resource: cellulose carefully selected from the branches of special trees. The remarkable properties of wood provide textile materials made from Lenpur with extraordinary properties. Lenpur is truly the best "vegetable fibre produced by man". The fibres retain the wood's natural properties. The characteristics of Lenpur (US Patent 005599784) are owed to the specific types of timber used for its production, independent of the process used for its manufacture. The main differences in Lenpur compared to other cellulose fibres is its softness, its absorption capacity, its ability to release dampness (as a yarn or fabric), its deodorant properties, and its adsorption characteristics (due to its morphology). When mixed with other fibres, Lenpur is in "mechanical synergy" with them.
