The fiber content of this yarn is Lyocell also referred to as "Vegan Silk".  It is sustainable and compostable.

 

First produced commercially in Mobile, Alabama almost 30 years ago, lyocell is currently enjoying a lot of attention as a plant-based fibre used for clothing. It is primarily made from eucalyptus leaves. It is a sustainable fiber as eucalyptus trees grow quickly, without irrigation and virtually any pesticides, on land no longer fit for food.

 

The production of lyocell doesn’t use toxic chemicals, and 99.5% of the dissolving agent can be used repeatedly. Compared to cotton, lyocell has the potential to use less than half as much water in production. The fabric’s breathability is also great for the planet, as it doesn’t start smelling as quickly and can be washed less frequently, saving water. The fabric is soft, has moisture wicking properties and is hypoallergenic.
