Stretch fabric is a flexible, form-fitting fabric that is able to stretch in a 2-way or 4-way direction. Woven or knit, 2-way stretch fabric can be sourced from any type of fiber like cotton, polyester, nylon, or rayon, but 4-way stretch fabrics must contain some spandex. Because of the different types of manufacturing processes involved, the characteristics of stretch fabric may vary. Stretch fabric can be found in heavy or lightweight, flowy or structured, and sheer or opaque varieties. Additionally, stretch fabric can have printed patterns, or be intricately embroidered.
