Modal, produced from the wood of beech-tree, is a kind of completely natural fiber which has high dry and wet tensile strength values. It is quite resistant to wear and, in addition, it transfers humidity extremely well. Woven or knitted fabrics made of Modal, have a smooth handle. Thanks to its feature to transfer humidity very well, Modal gives wearing comfort even in hot, moist climatic conditions.
Modal fiber’s behaviour resembles the cotton fiber in finishing processes; now that it is not thermoplastic, but regenerated cellulose based. When used in 100 percent, Modal does not require any bleaching and mercerization processes, thanks to the original white colour of the fiber.
