Viscose is a type of rayon that is a manufactured fiber made of regenerated cellulose. Made from wood pulp, it is soft, shiny, and silk-like fiber. It can be used as an accent or in a blend with other materials such as wool, where it becomes an excellent replacement for authentic, higher-priced, silk. These inexpensive, but unique rugs create a brilliant luster and a soft and velvety look in your home.
