Hello, please forgive my ignorance, but I looked at the tag on my Raf Simons turtleneck for the first time today and noticed it was part "PUE" and part "CM." Does anyone know what these stand for?

Thanks

From memory:
PUE - Polyester Elastane - used for stretch
CM - Modal (semi-synthetic cotton replacement made from cellulose, a bit like how rayon is used as cheap replacement for silk)
