    Anyone one else have experience with Modal textile?

    It is Beachwood fiber that is softer than cotton and breathes like synthetic.
    I have 9 pairs of socks of 80% Modal and 20% nylon. They kept my feet dry and comfortable during my 18 days recently in Japan and South Korea.

    I have some under/tee-shirts made of modal and micromodal. Very nice.

    I have a few modal blend sweaters. They feel fine and I've had no problems with them.

    Modal is made from wood fiber, so it breathes better than synthetics, but not as well as cotton.

    Modal is a type of rayon (as is bemberg).

    I have some cotton/modal towels that have worked well.
