Elastic Widths and Suggested Uses Chart

I have been cutting down 3/4" elastic into 1/4" strips for masks. Some fraying does occur, but you peel it off - just that fray - and after that, the piece doesn't seem to fray any more.

I wanted to know if this elastic can be cut from 2" to 1" without it falling apart? I like buying the wider for adults but also being able to cut to any shorter size for kids clothes

Unfortunately, this elastic is not see-through. We have clear elastic that may be a better option. Stock #: EL402CL.

Can this elastic be stitched through for waistbands on pants? I used to purchase elastic like this, but can't find it anymore.

A:
Yes, this elastic can be sewn through. Knitted elastic does not narrow when pierced by needles or stretched and is excellent for sewing directly to fabric or inserted into casing.

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.

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

A:
It is not a “plush-back” elastic. We do carry another product, our stock number EL-65WH which is the “plush back”.

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.

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