Chances are you, as a consumer, have come across a prevalent fabric on the market today called Modal. Well, have you ever wondered what it is?

Today there is a manufacturing company that falsely sells such fabrics like modal as natural, sustainable, eco-friendly and our future in the textile industry. However, natural is just not the reality.


Revealing Modal
So what is modal? It is actually a type of rayon made from reconstituted cellulose. You may remember Rayon from a previous post, and the side effects are severe. To understand more click here for the post on Rayon. ..and yes, modal is light weight, shrink and fade resistant, but… Modal loses shape and has been attributed to far worse things as severe itching and burning rashes when worn. There are several other fabrics that are being portrayed as natural, but as a conscious consumer and fashionista you too can be informed. Join Silver Needle & Thread at the next A Fabulous You Seminar where those fabrics will be revealed a…

WARNING: Stay Away from these Harmful Fabrics by SILVER NEEDLE & THREAD

Image
Two very common fabrics used in fashion today are actually the most harmful to your health.

The First…

Polyester: made from synthetic polymers, is a very hot and restrictive fabric.
Trapping toxins in your body, over time causing them to build up and cause major health issues like cancer. 

The Second… Rayon: made from wood pulp and treated with chemicals like ammonia, acetone and sulphuric acid to name just a few.
Linked to many ailments such as nausea, headaches, and can you believe anorexia and Parkinson’s disease for people who regularly wear the fabric? Not surprising after learning the amount of chemicals it’s been treated with.

One things for sure our bodies need less toxins and to breath...

So what’s the best thing you can do for your health when it comes to fabrics? Have your clothes custom sewn (employ a local dressmaker, seamstress or tailor to custom sew key wardrobe items just like Silver Needle & Thread) Avoid all chemically treated clothing Educate yourself by researchi…

ARE YOUR CLOTHES KILLING YOU?

YES THEY ARE!  The textile industry utilizes dangerous methods to bring you all those inexpensive mass produced garments that are toxic to your health and the environment.  Tons of toxic chemicals are being put into the production of most conventional clothing without the knowledge of the general public.  If you want to protect yourself and your family seek organic and natural chemical free clothing.  Silver Needle & Thread is a custom sewing company specializing in sewing organic and natural fabrics.  Follow us on face book at:  https://www.facebook.com/silverneedleandthread?ref=hl  to learn more.
