Viscose fibre

textile f. produced from cellulose xanthate dissolved in a caustic soda solution. Produced as viscose rayon and viscose staple fibre. Its parent raw material is cellulose from the wood of coniferous trees. V. is strong, though when wet its strength is reduced by half; other undesirable properties include a tendency to crease. Viscose staple fibre is mixed most commonly with cotton, woollen and polyester f. in the production of woven fabrics and knits for underwear, coats and dresses.
