TENCEL™ Modal is a man-made cellulose fiber and is essentially a variety of viscose. It is made by spinning reconstituted cellulose from beech trees in a modified viscose process. This process gives longer cellulose molecules which result in an improved version of viscose with better textile performance properties. Modal feels fine and soft and is very comfortable to wear. It is also less likely to fade or to form pills as a result of friction. It is more moisture absorbent than cotton. The modal fabric originates from Europe and is already widely used in clothing as a replacement for cotton.
Modal garments are generally very easy to care for. Wash on 60°, do not bleach, medium heat iron, can be dry cleaned, can be tumble dried on low heat.
