According to marketing materials, lyocell fiber is a "green and eco-friendly fiber" with a promising future in the twenty-first century. Lyocell fiber is made using a cellulosic non-derivative solution system, which relies on N-methyl morpholine-N-oxide, which is non-toxic and recyclable. Compared to other regenerated cellulosic fibers, lyocell fiber has higher wet tenacity, a softer, silkier handle, luster, startling water absorption, and improved wearer comfort. Lyocell may be printed using dyes used for other cellulose fibers because it is a type of cellulose fiber. The lyocell substance will be identified in this study, as will the various printing methods.
