Lenzing creates solution to measure softness in textiles

Specialty fibre producer Lenzing has created a solution to measure softness in textiles. Using a softness measuring device from Emtec Electronic and the well-known ring method, Lenzing has concluded that higher the amount of Lenzing Modal in the textile, the softer it becomes, while also concluding that MicroModal is the softest fibre among all its fibres.

According to Lenzing, softness is becoming increasingly important as a comfort factor in brands and with retailers and Modal fibre is the softest fibre in its portfolio, which can even be felt from the feel of the fabric.

“However, an increasing number of customers are asking for measurements to explain the softness of our fibres in physical terms,” Claudia Mommer, product manager for Lenzing Modal said. “The test method should quickly depict the degree of softness of fabrics with Modal, to help customers communicate softness at point of sale.” (AR)
