Knitwit Scuba Crepe Knit fabric is a very popular fashion fabric which is being used extensively in sheath dresses, in A-line dresses as well as in pants – both slim and wide legged. (Google “scuba crepe” – with the quotation marks – and select Images to see how popular this fabric is at the moment).
Scuba crepe can be washed time and time again and still look brand new. It has a crepe finish (high twisted fibre finish) on the right side of the fabric, and very good stretch recovery.
Medium stretch, by which we mean 35% stretch. If your pattern is sized for a low stretch fabric (less then 35%stretch), you can still use it, but you may need to take the garment in.
Two way stretch, by which we mean the fabric stretches in one direction only, from selvedge to selvedge.
