Eucalyptus oil is used for medicinal purposes, while its wood pulps are used to make eucalyptus bedsheets. This plant has been utilized in many forms and can now easily be found in any household.
Eucalyptus has been planted all over the world as an ornamental plant because of its fast growth and attractive appearance. It can be grown successfully from the Mediterranean to subarctic climates, yet it does not tolerate frost well at all.
In Africa, eucalyptus has been introduced as street trees, where they grow very quickly on disturbed soils with little competition from other plants or animals.
While there are many uses of eucalyptus plants here in Australia and all over the world, there is this one use that has been gaining popularity lately.
Bedsheets are being manufactured with eucalyptus wood pulps, and the benefits are that the plant is known to have anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, decongestant, and antibacterial properties.
In this article, we will discuss the process of manufacturing eucalyptus wood pulps into fabrics for bedsheets.
How Eucalyptus Fabrics Are Made Into Bedsheets
The eucalyptus tree is a fast-growing evergreen that can grow to be around 50 meters tall. The leaves are used to make eucalyptus oil, which has many medicinal purposes, while the wood pulp is used to make eucalyptus bedsheets The eucalyptus tree is a hardwood that grows all over the world.
The raw material is collected and processed in a closed-loop method that uses organic solvents to guarantee safety and sustainability through re-use.
What Does Closed-loop Mean?
Closed-loop means that organic solvents are re-used, reducing waste and water usage.
The eucalyptus tree's wood is crushed into a pulp and then broken down. This pulp is where the fabric begins. It's here that our organic solvent enters the picture. It's intended to liquefy the pulp by combining it with an organic solvent (please note that not all chemicals are harmful!).
Our lyocell fabric is made out of cellulose, which is a type of chemical structure (e.g., water, oxygen, and so on are all chemical compounds). Fibres are generated as a result of this. After they've been thoroughly cleaned and dried, these fibres are woven into our lyocell product.
How much water is used when manufacturing?
Unlike making cotton, manufacturing eucalyptus bedsheets uses less water.
The average cotton farm requires almost 10 000 litres of water to produce just half a kilo of cotton! Whereas eucalyptus needs less than 50 litres of water to make the same amount.
The closed-loop method ensures that the organic solvent is re-used instead of being wasted. With less water needed for production, this helps keep our environment clean and healthy.
How Do You Harvest The Eucalyptus Wood Pulp?
The eucalyptus trees are not uprooted like other trees but rather chopped down. The branches and leaves are then removed, and the trunk is chopped into small pieces. These pieces are then heated until they turn into wood pulp.
The wood is then transported to a manufacturing plant, where it is turned into the fabric for bedsheets. The process allows the trees to grow back and be harvested again—a more sustainable approach to sourcing materials.
Eucalyptus is one of the world's most sustainable fabrics. It's environmentally friendly and crafted with an eco-conscious design. Our closed-loop process also ensures that our environment remains clean and healthy while producing eucalyptus fabrics for bedsheets.
