Modal has been classified as a bio-based textile fibre made of wood pulp. Its particularity is that Modal is made exclusively from beech trees, which makes it more costly than fibres made from undifferentiated wood pulp. The process to transform the pulp into yarn is also milder to nature while the result is softer and the feel more delicate.
Garments made of Modal yarn or Modal mixed with fibres such as cashmere or merino wool are luxuriously comfortable and breathable. They easily absorb excess moisture.
