Navy - Recycled Polyester / Spandex Swimsuit Fabric - 1/2 yard

$ 9.50 CAD

👙🌿⁣ This is the dream, folks: an opaque, ultra high-quality UPF 50 swimsuit fabric that just happens to be made of recycled post-consumer plastic. Perfect for sitting backyard poolside, tubside or city-balcony-side. (Would also make a smashin' sports bra or workout tank!)


-Colour: Bright, deep navy

-Undertone: Neutral 

-Fabric Content: OEKO-TEX certified 92% recycled polyester and 8% Spandex. This fabric is also treated with Chitosante (the only anti-bacterial treatment certified by the US Environmental Protection Agency!) which adds ~ magical ~ wicking, odor-resisting, and anti-pill properties.

-Opacity: Opaque and, as per my bathtub tests, won't sheer in water :) (though it's good practice to line bathing suits regardless!)

-Weight: Mediumweight (250 gsm, 7.4 oz)

-Stretch Percentage: 75% widthwise & lengthwise stretch

-Width: 60"

-Drape: Fluid while retaining some structure

-Care: Hand or machine wash cold with similar colours, hang to dry, iron low temperature. As this will shed microfibres into the water supply, we highly recommend investing in a microfibre-catching wash bag.

🌱SustainabilityManufactured with 92% OEKO-TEK certified recycled polyester (rPet). This particular recycled polyester is made from 100% post-consumer recycled materials (primarily discarded water bottles).
