Stretch fabric is comprised of synthetic fibres such as elastane or Lycra, and can either be classes as 2-way stretch or 4-way stretch. The 2-way fabrics stretch in one direction only, whereas 4-way fabrics stretch from side to side, front to back. A little stretch can be combined with silk or wool to maintain shape and give a comfortable fit.

Fashion designers use stretch fabric to create high fashion apparel, including designer swimwear and sports clothing.

If you’re unable to find the right stretch fabric for your project, then do get in touch with us here. We’re more than happy to help.
