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!!
