I was surprised to learn that Lucky & Me children’s underwear uses modal. In all my years producing lingerie for brands like Hanes, Soma, and Victoria’s Secret, we never used modal. What a miss! Modal fabric has some amazing properties that make it perfectly-suited for anything worn next to the skin, and it’s especially wonderful for our precious children.
As soon as you touch Lucky & Me kid’s clothes, you will feel the luxurious difference silky modal yarn provides our fabric blend. And your child may say something similar to my daughter’s reaction when she first tried on the Annika Boyshorts: “Mom, these undies are so comfy!!” She loves the super-soft feel of undies made with modal. And we think you will love modal’s special qualities, too.
Is modal soft?
Modal is known for being super soft. The fibers are naturally soft and drape well, which contributes to their silky, smooth feeling. Perfect for sensitive skin!
Does modal shrink?
Shrinkage Resistance: Blending modal with cotton keeps your kids’ undies fitting long after 100%-cotton garments would have shrunk down a size. And have you ever noticed how cotton underwear often twists after washing? Side seams get out of skew or the leg openings are not symmetrical. This is due to uneven shrinkage. Blending cotton with modal helps our garments keep their shape.
How absorbent is modal fabric?
Absorbency: Modal fabric is 50% more absorbent than cotton so excess moisture is absorbed into the fabric. No more clammy cotton! Your little ones will stay dry and comfy throughout each busy day.
Is modal fabric breathable?
Breathability: Because modal material is made from beechwood pulp, its natural properties allow breathability. Sweat and moisture are quickly absorbed and released and not trapped next to the skin.
Will modal underwear easily rip?
Strength: Modal is very strong and will hold up to your children’s active lifestyle.
Is modal durable?
Durability: Clothing made with modal is very hand-me-downable. Fabric made with modal resists pilling and shrinking. It stands up to multiple washings without using its shape. Modal holds dye easily, so the colors will stay vibrant even after many washes. So your child’s favorite fun colors and prints will last longer.
Is modal good for the environment?
Sustainability: Modal is eco-friendly. It’s made from beechwood trees, which are a renewable resource. Modal is biodegradable. And modal production uses 10-20 times less water than cotton, so it’s more sustainable in terms of water resources.
What is modal fabric?
Modal fabric is a super soft fiber made from beechwood trees. In clothing you often see it combined with cotton and spandex. It is considered a semi-synthetic because the raw material, cellulose, is a natural material which is then turned into fiber using an environmentally-friendly chemical process. Modal is classified as a bio-based textile, which means it was made from a substance derived from living organisms.
How do you wash modal?
Modal can be cared for with the same guidelines you use for cotton. You can wash it in any temperature, and tumble dry in accordance with the directions on the label. Avoid chlorine bleach as it can weaken the fiber.
