Stretch fabric

Showing Red

Stretch fabric is a relatively new invention which has only become widely used in garment making since the 1990's. The name given to the synthtic fibre which created the elasticity in textiles is spandex, an anogram of expands, although it is more commonly known in Britain as elastane or lycra. Most commonly used in sports clothing, spandex is becoming more widely used. Mixed with other fibres such a denim and corduroy it can greatly improve the fit and comfort of the clothes.
