Rayon is a broad category of semi-synthetic viscose fibers. There are different types of rayon and they depend on the type of plant it is made from.
RAYON - made from wood pulp.
MODAL - made from beech tree fibers.
BAMBOO - made from bamboo plants.
Modal and bamboo have a "silky" quality to them. They do not pill as easily with wash and wear.
Rayon Spandex is very light and airy, making it great for warmer weather sewing. With fabric care, be sure to wash without abrasives like zippers and velcro as it may pill faster.
These have gorgeous drape, great stretch, but recovery depends on the type- normal rayon spandex doesn’t have great recovery, modal and bamboo have good recovery but are not suitable for fitted clothing like leggings. These are all going to be a lighter weight knit.
Idea's of what you can make: Flowy tops, skirts, dresses, pjs.
