12 Benefits of Wearing Modal:

  • Soft. Modal has a superbly soft touch, and is often used for pajamas, panties, and bed sheets.
  • Stretchy. The flexibility of Modal makes it magically stretch without clinging.
  • Eco-friendly. Made from regenerative plants, there are fewer chemicals used in the production process of Modal than with other types of fabric.
  • Breathable. The breathability of Modal means this material can easily transfer from day to night–whether you’re musing or moving, Modal will softly support you.
  • Water absorbent. Modal is 50% more absorbent than cotton; micropores inside the fabric absorb any water or sweat they come into contact with.
  • Durable. Because of the tight weave and the long fibers it’s made with, Modal is very strong. 
  • Doesn’t cling. Similar to rayon and other smooth textiles, Modal is supremely soft and lays lightly on your body without clinging to every curve.
  • Doesn’t pill. The fabric resists pilling and has a smooth finish that makes it ideal for everyday wear and use.
  • Color fast. The fabric absorbs dye in warm water and won’t bleed dye when you’re washing it.
  • Doesn’t shrink. Unlike most forms of rayon, Modal is much less likely to shrink in the wash, letting you wash and wear your favorite pieces again and again.
  • Biodegradable. Modal is completely biodegradable, reducing its fashion footprint.
