Because of the reconversion of the soluble compound to cellulose, rayon is referred to as a regenerated cellulose fiber.
Rayon fibers are wet spun, which means that the filaments emerging from the spinneret pass directly into chemical baths for solidifying or regeneration.
High performance rayons, such as tire cord, did not appear until the late 1930s, with the advent of hot-stretching and addition of larger amounts of zinc to the spin bath.

Rayon is a very versatile fiber and has the same comfort properties as other natural fibers and can imitate the feel and texture of silk, wool, cotton and linen.

 Rayon - The Multi-Faceted Fiber, HYG-5538-02
Rayon's versatility as a fiber and relatively low cost have increased its use in blending, but also encouraged its use in lower quality fabrics and garments—the performance of which has sometimes tarnished the image of rayon.
Rayon has moderate resistance to acids and alkalis and generally the fiber itself is not damaged by bleaches; however, dyes used in the fabric may experience color change.
Rayon is a versatile fiber and is frequently found in blends with polyester, nylon, and acrylic—all of which are synthetics and heat sensitive.

 Making Rayon Fiber
Rayon's versatility is the result of the fiber being chemically and structurally engineered by making use of the properties of cellulose from which it is made.
Rayon fibers are engineered to possess a range of properties to meet the demands for a wide variety of end uses.
Flame retardant rayons have the additives distributed uniformly through the interior of the fiber and this property is advantageous over flame retardant cotton fibers where the flame retardant concentrates at the surface of the fiber.

Although rayon was a man-made fiber, it was not a pure synthetic since its basic component, cellulose, was naturally fibrous.
After World War II rayon fell victim to the success of the “true” synthetics, Orlon®, Dacron® and nylon.

For those of you who have been around rayon a lot, you know that there are both washable and "dry clean only" rayons in the garments that you sell.
Anytime a rayon garment, labeled "dry clean only," is washed, a risk is taken, and one of three things may happen.
Most of the washable rayon garments today are labeled "hand wash, cool water, drip dry or dry flat." And, it's important that these directions are followed, because when rayon is wet, it actually loses 30% to 50% of its strength.

Rayon absolutely must not be agitated at all; it is a weak fiber and shrinks easily.
