Quality made sewing notions.

Braided elastic is more eye-appealing and decorative than ribbed elastic and can be used on the outside of garments (linen, lingerie, blouses, etc.) as well as in casings. This light-weight elastic can be used with all types of fabrics. It is washable and dry cleanable and narrows when stretched. It is also shrink resistant and features a horizontal pull that stretches lengthwise. Washing Instructions: warm water wash and tumble dry. Available in a variety of colors and sizes.

Features

  • Narrows when stretched
  • Use mainly in casings
  • Washable and dry cleanable
  • Shrink resistant
  • Features a horizontal pull that stretches lengthwise

What is the best thread for sewing in elastic?

A:
Any thread with a polyester core/polyester cover or 100% polyester that has a high breaking strength is a good choice. If using a home machine, we suggest increasing the stitch density (more stitches per inch) to get the maximum stretch. The best application is a zig-zag stitch which puts in more thread per inch and has provides more give. When using an industrial machine, a cover stitch or flatlock machine is the best as this is 5 or 6 needle, hence more thread and more give. Another option is to make a casing or tunnel for the elastic to be threaded into, giving the gathered edge a chance to stretch only when the elastic is fully stretched.

What is the tensile strength of our elastic?

A:
Tensile strength of elastic cannot be measured because most equipment can only measure solid items like thread, wire, etc. Because of the stretch properties of elastic these machines “bottom-out” before the elastic breaks.

Do we carry “horizontal pull” elastic?

A:
Yes, all of our elastic is considered horizontal pull, meaning that is stretches lengthwise.

Why would elastic shrink? And is there a way to prevent this?

A:
Elastic, even shrink resistant elastic can shrink. To help avoid shrinking, cut the elastic using a hot blade and sew the ends. Shrinking is a property of rubber. When elastic is made it is put on a bed and pulled through a roller, thus the elastic is under some pressure. By cutting the ends, the elastic doesn’t have that tension holding it in place and it will shrink back into itself

A:
Wash with warm water and tumble dry. The temperature limitations are less than 200 degrees F. The elastic will last normally 1-3 years, but it will depend on environment and care.
