Modal fabric is a bio-based fabric that is made from spinning reconstituted beech tree cellulose. Modal is generally considered a more eco-friendly alternative to regular cotton because beech trees don’t require much water to grow and therefore the production process uses about 10-20 times less water. It contains more fiber than modal and It can be produced to be razor-thin as microfibers so that they can be processed into extremely fine yarns for high-quality lingerie. They are pleasantly soft to the skin despite their firmness. The wastewater and emissions burden is minimized in modal producing. It absorbs and releases moisture and dries easily. Modal is completely biodegradable and Modal’s flexibility makes it ideal for items like t-shirts and athletic wear. The fabric resists pilling and has a smooth finish that makes it ideal for everyday wear and use.
