Scuba fabric is a polyester mix fabric mostly known for use with figure hugging fashion and sporting garments. The fabric consists of a 92% polyester and 8% elastane blend, and constructed using a double knit method which results in a thicker fabric with a smooth yet spongy feel.
The double knit quality of scuba fabric allows it to be able to hold shape whilst having an amount of stretch; this is why it has proved popular for fitted garments. The knit and weight of the fabric allows it to drape and hang nicely, so it can also create lovely clothing shapes that hang beautifully, so you don’t have to use it just for fitted garments.Taking care of scuba fabric is easy, just remember to use a cool 30 – 40 degree wash so the elastane in the fabric stays stretchy. For more info, have a look at our Super Stretch Scuba Blog.

Please Note: The visual appearance of fabric and colour may vary on screen between monitors due to the different screen colour settings;
The actual fabric appearances, textures, colours and quality of your fabric may not be as what you see on screen, the dyeing process between fabrics vary due to way the fabric has been woven, constructed or treated. Another factor is the type of yarn used (coarse or fine), these are key factors to consider when choosing the right fabric for your project.
We recommend you order actual fabric samples of the fabrics you are interested in. With samples you will be sure of the fabric shade, texture, quality and the fabric feel, also you will know if it is the right fabric for your application.
Important Point to remember about your colour; i.e. RED may not be the same as our RED, this is the same rule for any colour, you must request fabric samples, we do offer free samples, simply call us to order them.
