Cotton & Modal
Cotton is breathable and comfortable, yet strong and durable.
Cotton washes really well, so can withstand a lot of wear and tear. It also keeps the body cool which is why it is used for bedding and makes great Summer knitwear and t-shirts.
Cotton also holds dye well, so lots of our Cotton jumpers and Cotton Cardigans are in bright shades. Perfect for the Summer months. We sometimes add Modal to our Cotton yarn. Modal is made from the pulp of beech trees and is flexible and more absorbent that Cotton, making it perfect for active wear.
Chemicals are used in the process of creating Modal, so we can’t claim it is 100% ecologically sound.
However, Modal does use far less land than growing cotton and uses up to twenty times less water.
