    Target PJ's- Does anyone know firber content???

    What is the firber content. never heard of the main fiber?/ someone help please.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I just bought a 2nd pair today, hang on, I'll go look

    95% modal, 5% spandex. Very comfy knit, and they are very long in the leg and sleeve
    Hope that helps.

    If your question was what is Modal...your guess is as good as anyone

    ah...good old Goog
    rayon
    Modal is a type of rayon, a semi-synthetic cellulose fiber made by spinning reconstituted cellulose, in this case often from beech trees. Modal is used alone or with other fibers (often cotton or spandex) in household items such as pyjamas, towels, bathrobes, underwear and bedsheets.

    If they are rayon, they probably shrink like crazy!

    I'll measure my new ones and run them through the wash/dry today and will report back on shrinkage.
    I've never had any knits shrink before though.

    Only time knits have ever shrunk on me is when I put on extra pounds.

    I love mine, and so soft and comfy, the length was great for me...haven't washed them yet...but not worried about shrinking...was really surprised at how nice they are...don't think I've ever spent $30 for a pr of pajamas though, but glad I did...go for it!!

    Gee, thanks for all the info. Canada has no Target now but I was going to get a relative in Fl to go to store for me and they could be my Christmas present. Was afraid the xl would not be true fit but need short fat style rather than tall thin . Haven't decided if I should say anything yet but they may be selling fast otherwise.

    thanks all for explaining what model is, never heard of it, and wondered if it was natural or synthetic.
    I need a pair of these.

    Target has some pj's with a sewing theme......Four of us are going to a quilting retreat, thought it would be fun to be matching. Why do they make them so long waisted? Still the legs were really long.....I don't think I will grown 2 feet taller to be able to wear them. ; ) The fabric really felt nice.....but the fit......not so nice....
