Filpar swimwear elastic is 100% rubber with a silicone coating, making it sewing-machine friendly and easy to use. It is 9mm (5/16″) wide with a very thin profile which makes it less bulky than the more usual cotton-wrapped rubber elastic. The ribbed surface grips the fabric as you are sewing and overlocking and so prevents the dreaded “elastic creep” that can be so frustrating. Use for our Denise swimsuit or Three Sisters Bikini patterns, together with swimwear lining fabric.
This elastic is chlorine and salt resistant.
Please note: this item is priced by the metre. Multiple purchases will be supplied in a continuous length.
