Cupro is a relatively new fabric, similar to Tencel,  derived from the residue of cotton fibres:

a)  similar to rayon  in feel, but with the breathing and temperature regulating qualities of cotton

b) as a silk substitute, cupro has the ability to drape beautifully with the bonus that it can be  machine-washed and machine dried.

c) cupro is a hypoallergenic, antistatic fabric that keep it’s shape and form

d) regenerated from the cotton linter – the very fine, silky fibres that stick to the seeds of the cotton plant after it’s been ginned. A solution of ammonia and copper oxide is used to obtain the fibres, lime rayon the fibre is natural but the treatment required  renders the classification ‘artificial.’
