What Is A Modal?

Dear Jennifer,
I’ve often seen descriptions of fabric in clothing catalogues, as ‘modal’. But what is modal?
We, my wife my daughter and me, just like to know what we might be getting and what to expect of it.
Your help is appreciated, sincerely, George

Dear George,
Here is what The Big Expert at Fabrics.net, Judith, reports about modal: It is a British generic term for cellulose fiber with the strength of “high wet modulus”. In other words, it is rayon.
Hope this helps!
Jennifer
