What is braided elastic?
Braided elastic is produced by braiding manufacturing and used in waist parts, necklines and other applications where shrinkage is necessary.
It has parallel horizontal ribs running the length of the elastic, and the elastic contracts and can roll when stretched. It loses some of its stretches when sewn. Therefore, it is not suitable for sewing directly onto fabric.
The components are polyester yarn, polypropylene yarn, nylon yarn, cotton yarn, and natural rubber.
