Quality made sewing notions.

Braided elastic is more eye-appealing and decorative than ribbed elastic. It can be used on the outside of garments (linen, lingerie, blouses, etc.) as well as in casings at the waistline, neckline, sleeve and leg bands. This light-weight elastic can be used with all types of fabrics. Available in a variety of colors and sizes. Braided elastic is shrink-resistant and features a horizontal pull that stretches lengthwise. It narrows when stretched. It is not recommended that you cut braided elastic horizontally. Cutting it lengthwise will cause it to fray and run. Braided elastic is both washable and dry cleanable. Washing Instructions: warm water wash and tumble dry.

Elastic Widths and Suggested Uses Chart

Braided Elastic is a perfect choice for making homemade face masks to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 as recommended by the CDC.

Braided Elastic is the Perfect Choice For Fabric Face Masks.

When you are constructing fabric face masks, choose 1/8" or 1/4" braided elastic for your ear loops. It is quick and easy to secure your mask using this elastic. Parallel ribs on braided elastic make it flexible, and cause it to narrow when stretched. It is light-weight but durable, making it an excellent choice to withstand multiple washes and daily use.
