MicroModal® - perfect fineness and softness

MicroModal® deserves the name of Edelweiss for it‘s eco-friendly production process. Edelweiss stands for the gentle treatment of the environment. The fiber is made of European beechwood and is completely natural. MicroModal® is CO2 neutral and is produced at the Lenzing site in Austria. Since the facility is fully integrated – the pulp and fibers are produced in a symbiotic manner – production synergies are optimized, energy is conserved, and valuable substances are recovered from the process. MicroModal® is pure and natural like the Edelweiss.

MicroModal® cultivates luxurious cotton

Long-staple cotton stands for quality.

Enhanced with MicroModal®, textiles with long-staple cotton are characterized by outstanding luxury. Because of MicroModal®’s botanic origin, it is particularly eco-friendly and its fineness is comparable to natural silk. The resulting sheen, softness, and naturalness are unparalleled. Quite simply, the result is pure luxury as tests have proven.*

The finer, the softer. MicroModal® is the perfect softener for long-staple cotton. Adding 50% MicroModal® to cotton significantly increases the softness factor as the test shows. Softness is critical after all. Determined by the fabric’s flexing resistance, softness affects the drape, hand, slinkiness, and creasing behavior.

More botanic sheen

MicroModal® bringt jeden Stoff zum Strahlen.

MicroModal® makes every fabric shine. The colors are bright and remain both vibrant and intensive. MicroModal®’s smooth fiber surface makes fabrics shine perceptibly more intensively than 100% cotton fabrics. Even a small admixture of MicroModal® adds natural, botanic sheen to the end product.

Quality by Edelweiss technology

MicroModal® and long-staple cotton are made for each other. Due to the fiber’s ability to be mercerized and its high alkali resistance, MicroModal® is ideal for cotton blends. Even tone-in-tone dyeing is no problem. Indeed it is a perfect partner for cotton.
