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.

A:
It could be, but for best results we recommend the Elastic Cotton Swim Reel Elastic (EL-103) or the Plastic Swimwear Elastics because it's less affected by saltwater or chlorine.

What is the best thread for sewing in elastic?
Anonymous
Posting As
Please Note: Your answer will be displayed upon approval.
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.

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?
Anonymous

Please Note: Your answer will be displayed upon approval.
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

What is the best way to wash Braid Elastic and how long does it last?

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.

What is the tensile strength of our elastic?
Anonymous

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.

Good Quality Elastic

Buy this elastic with confidence. I've used a roll and a half now and the quality was consistent throughout, the weight was good, the stuff doesn't twist or warp. I'm really happy with it and just bought two more spools.

Great Quality

This elastic is excellent, sturdy, and has great elasticity when pulled. I would, without a doubt, recommend this elastic to a potential customer. As always, the service from Wawak was top-notch and the shipping the quick. Future purchases will definitely take place.
