Does anyone have a good source for good priced knit fabric, specifically Modal fabric? The only sources I can find for Modal are wholesale. I have some RTW in Modal and I love it. It's comfortable and doesn't pill as much as some knits.

Modal is just a brand name for a rayon made by a German company. I've not ever touched modal but I'm thinking it should be essentially the same as any good quality Rayon jersey out there---and there are lots of rayon jerseys out there right now....most have a tiny bit of lycra in them--3% to 10%. I also have found bamboo knit with 3% Lycra to be very like the softer, drapier rayon jerseys that are around now.

I also know that one PR member bought Modal sheets at her local Linens and Things to cut up and use the fabric for sewing.

Bed Bath Beyond--Modal sheet sets

ETA: I think these are woven, not knit. I have found rayon knit sheets at my neighborhood thrift store which are quite nice, but they say "rayon" not Modal.

My mom bought some and they are wonderful! She wants me to make a nightgown with the sheets. She got a really good deal on them, too.

I've bought some rayon knits from Fabric.com in the past. I don't know if they currently have any.

But then I later saw the same knits for sale at FashionFabricsClub.com.

I've bought modal knits at Textile Studio (www.textilestudiofabrics.com). I don't know if there is any in stock right now, but they do carry it from time to time and the quality of fabric at Textile Studio is excellent.

Just wondering, has anyone ever purchased the 10 pound box of Fabric from fashionfabricsclub.com? If so, was it good?

You might want to post this question in its own thread. You'd probably get a better response that way. I know people DO order that bundle....couldn't tell you about quality or content, though.
