Scuba is a double knit fabric, named for a slight similarity to neoprene – though much finer. It has great stretch and recovery and is generally used to make dance-wear, leggings and figure-hugging evening or party dresses. Scuba is quite easy to sew and to care for. Use a ball-point or stretch needle and a larger stitch than normal to cope with the stretch and the spongey texture of the fabric. 95% polyester, 5% spandex. 150cm width. Available in turquoise, cerise, red, magenta, teal, grey, and black.
