Legna: An Eco-Fiber that Feels Like Silk

Legna (pronounced LANE-ya) is a new fiber from Italy that looks and feels like silk but washes and wears like cotton. It is made entirely from the wood of sustainably harvested trees using a closed-loop process, that continuously recycles 99.6% of the bleach-free solvent and the water used to make this fiber. Legna was created by the SDH copmany as an eco-friendly alternative to the cotton industry. Legna has received the European Union Technology Award for Sustainable Development. Legna bedding is available from Dax Stores. Towels and bathrobes can be had from The Giving Tree.
