Material: 100% Lenzing Modal
Kate wears a size S and is 5’9 in height.
Taking care of me:
Wash me at 30°
Air dry only (tumble drying creates 75% of the carbon footprint of a garment. Let’s look after the planet – it does give us a lot after all).
Expect 5% shrinkage on first wash.
Modal is a type of rayon fabric made from the fibers of beech tree. It is incredibly soft, drapes well, resists creasing and has a smooth lustrous finish – perfect for traveling.
Because modal is both absorbent and air breathable, it is cool to the touch. The fibers take and hold dye easily resulting in deep, brilliant colors and produce no dye bleeding during cleaning. It is less likely to shrink than cotton, however, it will pill as a result of tough surface friction. Avoid using full strength bleach for cleaning as it will weaken the fibre.
