Tencel a regenerated fiber manufactured from cellulose derivatives, is getting popularity nowadays due to its biodegradability and environment amenity depending on the less land and water consumption relative to organic and conventional cotton. Spinning process optimization of tencel is performed and reviewed in this article in comparison with conventional cotton process. Wider setting with low production speed is observed for tencel processing with superior yarn quality. Quality parameter of different yarn count evaluated and compared. Mass uniformity and its cv is significantly higher in tencel yarn; breaking strength is 50% greater in tencel along with breaking elongation; tencel yarn possess more twist (>15%) while twist cv is slightly lower; yarn cuts in autoconer machine is lower in tencel yarn.
