Why Is Modal Fabric Good for Kids

Fabric is by far the most important factor that parents consider for any piece of clothing that they get for their kids and with good reason. Kids have especially sensitive skin at their young age, and they need the best quality fabrics that make them feel good throughout the day. This is no different for their pyjamas, especially if they toss and turn. As parents, it’s very important for you to choose the ideal fabric for your child’s pyjamas so that they can enjoy a good night’s sleep. Modal fabric is one such fabric that is very popular among kids’ clothing, from underwear to pyjamas. Let’s look at why modal fabric is good for kids.

Modal is Soft

Modal fabric is an extremely smooth material that feels buttery soft on your skin. As it is made from natural substances (beech tree pulp), it suits most people with sensitive skin as there is much fewer chemical substances that is needed to process the fabric. This makes it ideal for your children, who have delicate skin that is prone to infection.

Modal’s buttery soft goodness also means that the fabric does not itch them during the night and sits lightly on their skin. Rawbought’s modal pyjamas also come with soft yet snug waistbands, which ensure that your child’s pyjamas do not bunch up or sag down and cause discomfort during the night.

Modal is Breathable

Modal is very breathable, perfect for tropical climates where temperatures can go up and down throughout the day and night. Modal’s unique temperature-regulating properties also mean that your child is kept cool when it’s warm and warm when it’s cool automatically. This allows them to have a good sleep experience throughout the night, even if they wear pyjamas that cover their whole body (i.e. a Full Set).

Modal is Stretchy

As parents, it’s inevitable that one day you suddenly realise that your child’s clothes have become too tight or short for them, thinking “Didn’t I just buy this a few months ago?”. That’s just how fast kids grow, especially at a young age! Clothing made of modal helps to keep that feeling at bay for longer, as it is a very stretchy fabric. Modal’s intricate yet strong weave allows it to maintain its shape for much longer than other fabric like cotton. This makes it a very durable fabric that lasts much longer, even with regular use.

It's comfortable stretchiness also means that your child’s modal pyjamas can see the child through multiple washes and their fast growth, without you needing to buy new ones too quickly.

Modal is Absorbent

Modal is also a very absorbent fabric, found to be 50% more absorbent than cotton. Due to the micropores in the fabric, clothes made out of modal are able to absorb any water and sweat that they encounter. This helps in regulating the temperature of the child, especially at night, if they happen to sweat. Modal’s moisture-wicking properties also ensure that the water/sweat is kept away from the kid’s body, keeping it cool and clean. This enables the child to continue having a comfortable night’s sleep without waking up.
