The name of elastic fabrics speaks for itself, since their main characteristic is the ability to stretch well and to not wrinkle. Both natural and synthetic materials can be elastic. This feature is ensured by the presence of special fibres in their composition.
Cotton is an elastic fabric, used for sewing products, which fit the body well and are comfortable while wearing. The high elasticity can also be found in the materials with the composition that includes a large percentage of sheep's wool. The material is well stretched, but it can never be broken. It is soft and light, and does not shrink.
We talked about natural elastic fibres, but as for synthetic materials, viscose has a great elasticity. The clothes of this material are easy to wash and they do not get wrinkled. You can use both hand and machine wash, because the products are able to return to its original size. Also, an elastic fabric mesh becomes popular for production of fashionable female clothes.
Elastane is the most elastic fibre, since this fabric can stretch about seven times and return to its previous state without changing the initial shape of the product. The filaments of this fibre are very resistant and are not susceptible to mechanical influence. They do not bend and do not fade in the sun. The only thing, which is really harmful for elastic fabric are chemicals, especially chlorine. It is noticed that after frequent visits to chlorinated water pools, the swimsuit of elastane material becomes thinner and loses its colour. To avoid this, you should immediately rinse the clothes in running water and dry it, immediately after swimming.
