Composition: 95% TENCEL™ Modal / 5% Elastane

Weight: 180gsm 

Width: 160cm

Origin: Australia

Details: Perfect for creating wardrobe basics such as t shirts, tanks and cardigan's with soft silhouettes.  Modal offers a smooth hand feel with luxurious softness making it a great option for all sorts of womenswear and underwear.  It can be a wonderful alternative for anyone unable to wear wool, as can be used in many of the same ways you would traditionally use a merino jersey. 

Unlike cotton, Modal is resistant to shrinkage and piling.  I find I get great mileage from Modal garments.  They offer deeply saturated colours and that incredible drape!  

Certification: Standard 100 by OEKO TEX certified, contains certified TENCEL™ Modal fibre.

Sustainability: TENCEL™ Modal jersey is more eco-friendly than standard modal (rayon) and viscose jerseys for a few reasons.  Lenzing AG, who manufacturer the fibres do so by using a closed loop production process.  This means the solutions used to create the fibres are captured and reused which minimises emissions and helps to conserves resources.  

TENCEL™ Modal It is also created from wood pulp that is harvested from sustainably managed European beech tree plantations.  

"The environmental footprint of TENCEL™ Modal is a mostly positive one - it’s carbon-neutral, requires less land per tonne than cotton fibres, and has a water consumption level that’s ten to twenty times less than that of cotton." - Good for You

Be sure to take a read of the Good for You Modal Material guide and scroll down to the heading 'Better Modal' which is where you can find their thoughts on Lenzing AG's TENCEL™ Modal.  

Make: It's my jersey fabric of choice for any garment that is created with both negative and positive ease and requires a fluid drape.  Try the Stylearc Nina swing cardigan, Closet Case Patterns Ebony t-shirt + dress, Muna and Broad's Kapunda undies or Ohhh Lulu's free Celeste knickers.

Stretch: 20% in each direction - You may find with certain patterns you prefer to size down to get the fit to your liking.  Please feel free to order a swatch card to check the stretch + recovery, opacity, etc.

Shrinkage: 2-3% 

Care instructions: Please prewash this TENCEL™ Modal jersey in the same way you intend to care for your finished garment.  We suggest a gentle, cold wash.  Please avoid optic whiteners.   Do not tumble dry, line dry away from direct sunlight.
