Lycra is a synthetic fiber that is known for its exceptional elasticity. It is stronger and more durable. Also known as spandex fiber, lycra is incorporated into a wide range of garments, especially in skin tight garments. It is stronger, light in weight and more versatile, as compared to other fibres. They are soft and smooth and can be dyed very easily. Lycra is ideal for swimwear and sportswear as well. It is also used to add stretch to jeans, tops and dresses. Lycra fabric is breathable and dries quickly. Also, lycra can be blended with several other materials to add stretch to the final product. Buy lycra fabric online on The Design Cart.
