Super soft modal blend
- story by MaterialDistrict
This super soft fabric blend consists of 78% modal, 16% polyester, and 6% spandex.
The base material for modal rayon is cellulose from hardwood trees like birch and oak, but this raw tree material goes through a complex manufacturing process before it is rendered into a weavable fibre. This type of rayon is most commonly used as an alternative to silk or cotton. Rayon was originally developed as an alternative to silk; early forms of this substance were called “artificial silk,” and they were highly popular in scarves and nightwear before their flammability was discovered.
More technically developed forms of rayon, such as modal rayon, are still commonly used as alternatives to silk.
In addition to modal, United Berry also offers other super soft blend materials.
