About the Fabric Blend:
Modal is an innovative fiber similar to rayon that is manufactured from cellulose, usually derived from wood pulp. Modal remains soft and lustrous after repeated washings and is very comfortable to wear. Spandex is a fabric with great elasticity that can be stretched many times its length and still spring back to its original form. Together, these create a garment with long-lasting style and comfort.

Modal fabric is a variety of rayon but dyes just like cotton and is colorfast when washed in warm water. Made by spinning reconstituted cellulose from beech trees, this fabric type is 50% more water absorbent per unit volume than cotton. These fabrics are known for their smoothness and softness.
Like other types of rayon, originally marketed as "artificial silk," modal is soft, smooth and breathes well. Its texture is similar to that of cotton or silk. It is cool to the touch and very absorbent. Like cotton, modal dyes easily and becomes color-fast after submersion in warm water.
One of the advantages of modal over cotton is its resistance to shrinkage, a notorious problem with cotton. Modal is also less likely to fade or to form pills as a result of friction. Its smoothness also makes hard water deposits less likely to adhere to the surface, so the fabric stays soft through repeated washings.
Modal drapes well and keeps its shape, even when wet. In order to keep them looking best, pure modal products should be ironed after washing. This may not be necessary for modal fabric blends, however.
Modal was first developed by the Austria Lenzing company, who trademarked the fabric's name, but now many manufacturers make their own versions. The textile has particularly taken off in Indian companies. In the United States, modal is most often seen in bed sheets, towels, and robes, popularized in part by Bed, Bath & Beyond. However, it is slowly gaining ground as a clothing material as well. In Europe, where the fabric originated, it is already widely used in clothing as a replacement for cotton.
