Modal is made by treating beechwood with chemicals, after which the obtained solution is spun into yarn. This is why it belongs to the natural artificial fibres. As the name suggests the viscose yarn it knitted, resulting in a stretch fabric. In this case elastan (5%) is added, ensuring the fabric keeps its shape.
Modal jersey is soft, breathing, stretch and relatively heavy, causing it to fall supple and making it very comfortable to wear. It has a long longevity, is absorbent and dries fast, and barely wrinkles.
In order to give your garment a long life, it’s important to pay attention to the washing process: To start with, only wash clothing when it’s dirty. Always sort your laundry by type of fabric and colour. Use the right laundry detergent and the right amount. Don’t stuff your machine with too much laundry. Turn your clothes inside out (also for ironing). Avoid the tumble-drier if possible, it uses a lot of energy and is generally not good for you clothes.
This modal jersey is slightly more delicate than others because it’s been imprinted. It’s best to wash it on maximum 30° on a delicate (wool/silk) program. Do not dry it in the tumble-drier. Ironing won’t quickly be necessary, but if you iron it, do it inside out and on a low temperature.
