Modal is considered a luxury textile and is often used to blend with other fabrics to give a high-end feel with its lightness and softness.
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 cotton.
Modal can be washed in the washing machine and tumble dried. However, be sure to check the item’s washing instructions, as a modal blend (with textiles like cotton and spandex) might have different requirements.
Polyester fibres are incredibly strong, meaning they don’t tear, stretch, or pull easily like cotton and other natural fibres. This strength means polyester clothing can easily handle abrasion from machine-washing and doesn’t require special care. The durability of polyester fabric has made it especially popular.
While linen and cotton fabrics can retain wrinkles and require ironing, polyester is virtually wrinkle-resistant and will better hold its shape, drape and rigidity.
