TENCEL™ Modal Jersey - Navy 0.5m
Composition: 95% TENCEL™ Modal / 5% Elastane
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
