It's long roots also prevent erosion and produce more fibre per acre than trees and can be harvested two to three times a year. Another important factor is that nothing is wasted in the production process: seeds are used to make oil and food supplements, while the stalks are used for fibre.

The standards of the raw material defines the quality and makes Modal so unmistakable and is 100% natural. MicroModal can be spun into extremely fine yarns - a touch of nature It is about 50% more water-absorbent per unit volume than cotton. It takes dye just like cotton and is colour-fast when washed in warm water. Textiles made from Modal are resistant to shrinkage and fading. They are smooth and soft, more so than mercerized cotton, to the point where mineral deposits from hard water do not stick to the fabric surface.
