High-quality fabric for making swimwear and activewear, available in eight colors: black, navy blue, rust (warm dark red), lagoon (deep neon green with a touch of blue), flamingo (medium neon pink), amethyst (dark neon purple with a touch of blue), fluo (searing highlighter yellow with a touch of green), and shiny terra cotta (perfectly matches our other terra cotta materials, with a shiny side and matte side).
This technical fabric is made with recycled nylon and boasts impressive resistance to chlorine and sunscreens, plus UV protection! Use it to make your own swimsuits or activewear that not only looks great, but performs the way you need it to. Also works well as a strong and sturdy bra-making fabric, especially for larger cup sizes.
This fabric has firm compression but still feels soft and comfortable to wear. It is mostly opaque, even when wet! (Lighter colors like flamingo could benefit from a lining, check out our silky microfiber, which also works as a swimsuit lining.)
Sold per half-meter; additional quantities will be cut in a continuous length, if available.
(Note! The direction of greatest stretch runs horizontally, which means that most one-piece swimsuit patterns will require a full meter. A half-meter is likely enough for bikini, shorts, cropped tops, or patterns that don’t require long pieces with the DOGS going horizontally around your body.)
