About Micro Modal Bedding
Soft as silk, even cooler than cotton, and long lasting (with care), Micro Modal® is becoming very popular as a bed linen. You will find exceptional examples of this fabric at J Brulee in the incredible Schlossberg's Lio, Knox and Solid Modal Beechwood, and several offerings from St. Geneve. You also will want to look at SDH's Legna Lyocell sheets, towels, and bedding as they are also a wood fiber bedding product. You will find all of these products here: Modal & Lyocell Sheets & Bedding
Keep in mind that while the Schlossberg, St. Geneve and the Schlossberg sheets & bedding are Modal fabrics, they are distinctly different. Just as in cotton sheeting, the way the Modal fabric is produced and finished can have a profound impact on the end bedding product. We have seen some rather poor examples of Modal sheets and can say from experience that they have a long way to go to get to Schlossberg or St. Geneve standards. Like just about anything else in life, you get what you pay for, and this goes doubly so for Modal bedding.
Also, don't think of this wonder fiber as being just for sheets. Modal also makes for splendid Duvet Cover and shams. Here in Tucson it's great to have a beautiful, lightweight, and breathable fabric for a duvet cover in the summer. Modal fabric is also very easy to care for, and as with any natural fiber it does best on low heat both in the washer and the dryer.
Micro Modal® is a incredibly soft, light and airy fabric made from beech wood cellulose. Most of our line's Modal threads are made in Austria, and is then woven in Italy , Sweden, or Germany. Because Modal is a natural fibre, Micro Modal® breathes 50% better than cotton, and remains soft and silky even after numerous machine washings when cared for properly.
Caring for Modal sheets is easy. (Always refer to the specific Manufacturer directions for specific details). As with any natural product you want to wash and dry on LOW heat, preferably washing in cold water, and use a gentle detergent. Don't overdry Modal either. Many people make the mistake of washing sheets and towels in hot water and drying on high heat, which is about the worst thing you can do. Please don't make that mistake! Your bedding and linens will last much longer and feel much nicer.
This comparison shows that the structure of the knitted fabric remains fine even after numerous washes.
