    Beautiful Fit - 9/27/2012
    By: from UK

    These trousers run true to size and fit perfectly. The lyocell/cotton mix ix beautiful and feels silky and cool on the skin. I am really a petite length so trousers usually need to be shortened but these come to just above ankle level on me. They would be calf length, as shown, on a taller person.

    These pants are great! They could have been made for me. That said I should mention that I have a small waist compared to my hips and I have larger thighs. For me they are very flattering with a nice line from hips to hem. Very pleased!

    wonderful pant - 2/18/2010
    Top 250 Contributor

    I really liked these pants and the fit was perfect but I returned them because the coordinating pieces (a tattersall shirt and striped sweatshirt) did not match in color close enough for me.

Lyocell: natural fabric meets high-tech performance

Eco-friendly and biodegradable

Women's Lyocell fashions at OrvisNo fabric available today could better display the ideals of Orvis than Lyocell. Lyocell is made of all-natural wood pulp fibers from trees grown on highly regulated farms that focus on sustainability. Not only is the material eco-friendly, but the process by which the fibers are made into fabric is, too. And when the clothing reaches the end of its useful life, it is especially kind to the environment. In fact, it is 100% biodegradable.

Moisture and temperature controlled for warm weather

The main benefit of clothing made from this unique fabric is the moisture and temperature control it offers to the wearer. Because wood pulp is naturally designed to absorb moisture for the tree’s survival, the fibers that are made into cloth do the same. The fabric pulls moisture directly from the skin and releases it into the air. Synthetic materials such as polyester do not take in moisture at all, but leave a film on the skin’s surface. And while cotton absorbs moisture, Lyocell is 1 ½ times as absorbent. While cotton and polyester can both leave moisture on the skin in humid weather, Lyocell does not, ensuring that bacteria will never get a chance to form between the fabric and the skin. This makes Lyocell a truly safe fabric for all skin types – even babies!

Durable and soft for maximum comfort

But how can a biodegradable and moisture-locking fabric not supplemented with synthetic fibers possibly withstand the trials of daily wear and tear? The secret lies in nanofibrils – microscopic hairs that branch off from the outermost fibers. In the fabricating process, the nanofibrils are manipulated to give an all-natural fabric unnatural strength. Lyocell even shows such strength while wet.

What’s more, Lyocell is an especially smooth fiber, and has softness comparable to cotton and silk. The nanofibrils can also be altered to create fabrics that feel like suede, silk, denim, or as though they had been treated for a peach-skin finish.

Furthermore, these versatile Lyocell fibers blend well with other fibers such as wool and cotton to create textiles more durable, soft, and moisture controlling than man-made fibers. Lyocell clothing provides maximum comfort – whether you’re on the go, at work, or enjoying the outdoors.

A "feel-good" stylish fabric that's good for the environment

The Orvis customer can feel good about wearing and buying Lyocell products – not only because they are naturally moisture wicking and very soft, but also because of the integrity in the source and the eco-friendly manufacturing process.
