Very soft with a nice drape. Very similar to rayon spandex but with a more luxurious feel. This fabric works really well for tops, dresses, skirts, etc.

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.
Beautiful, soft as silk, and extremely stretchy. Used to make the Ellie and Mac Tres Belle wrap dress with the striped cotton jersey from SSE on the bottom. The cotton jersey was a bit heavy for the modal, so had to add some clear elastic to the waist for extra support. My littlest asked for a matching dress and I am happily going to oblige. Would definitely buy this again.
