What is stretch fabric?
Stretch fabric is a blend to which elastane has been added. In other words, a blend. There are different kinds of stretch fabric. There are many different stretch blends, such as stretch cotton, stretch satin or polyester stretch fabric. Plenty to choose from!
So if you are wondering which fabrics have stretch, there is no direct answer. A fabric like cotton is not by itself a stretch fabric. However, it is possible to add stretch to the fabric, making it a stretch fabric. In this case, it becomes a blend.
Popular blends are:
- Cotton and elastane
- Polyester and elastane
- Satin and elastane
What types of stretch fabrics are available at House of U?
In our range of stretch fabrics you will find different compositions of cotton stretch and recycled polyester (Rpet) stretch. Perfect for your clothing design, but also suitable to use as stretch furniture fabric. For example, to cover sofas, chairs or armchairs.
Are you looking for a supple fabric that does not crease? Then the U-circular Vita is an interesting option. This blend of Rpet (recycled polyester) and elastane falls smoothly around the body and does not crease. This makes the fabric ideal for designing dresses, blouses, t-shirts or swimwear.
Another fine stretch fabric from our range is the U-circular Vita Heavy. This thick stretch fabric (280 gr/m2) is supple and has a beautiful sheen. Because the Vita Heavy is a bit thicker, this stretch fabric is ideal for pants, fitted dresses, tops or theater wear.
