Lenzing Modal®, a modal fiber from Lenzing, is naturally soft on the skin and exceptionally ecological.
With Lenzing Modal® you can feel it right away: the fiber comes from beechwood forests and makes use of photosynthesis which has been an important mechanism in nature since the beginning of time. Photosynthesis creates the basis for Lenzing Modal®. Beech forests thrive in Northern and Central Europe and have shaped the landscapes of these regions for centuries. They are both a natural and sustainable source of raw material.®. The key part of Edelweiss is the Edelweiss technology which is based on oxygen-based chemistry. Thus Lenzing Modal® is produced in an environmentally responsible way from the pulp through to the fiber. Up to 95% of the Lenzing Modal® production materials are recovered at Lenzing as a result of innovative environmental processes.
Softness is the overriding principle. Soft, softer, the softest. The higher the share of Lenzing Modal®, the finer the fiber and the softer the materials made from it.
Winner when it comes to softness
The low fiber rigidity and cross-section of Lenzing Modal® make the fiber an unparalleled supplier of softness in a completely natural way. Measurements of the softness factor show that Lenzing Modal® is twice as soft as cotton. The finer the fiber, the finer the textile becomes. Thus MicroModal® AIR is the winner when it comes to softness.*
