SUGGESTED FABRICS Knit fabrics with 50-75% stretch, preferably with a spandex content. Bamboo, Rayon, or blends with Cotton, Lycra, Silk, Spandex, Nylon, Tencel. (100% cotton tends to stretch out quickly and is not great for this!)

Measure stretch by marking out 4” of fabric, then gently stretch to max. 1” stretch = 25% : 2” stretch = 50% : 3” stretch = 75% : 4” stretch = 100%
