Slinky Matt Lycra printing: order online
A gorgeous new addition to the Lycra range that hangs with an elegant, form-fitting drape on the body. Order your test sample and feel the smooth, slinky texture for yourself.
Slinky Matt Lycra has a slippy front face that’s cool to the touch. The interior face has a slightly softer quality, which makes it a comfortable fabric to wear tight against the skin. The fabric falls with an effortless, elegant drape.
This fabric is excellent for bold, block colours and finer details, and the matt finish lends itself well to complex, busy designs. Slinky Matt Lycra has a neutral, brilliant white base tone which assists accurate colour reproduction. Print colours are slightly disrupted by extreme stretching, however they return to their original tones when released.
Printing on Slinky Matt Lycra is great for form-fitting garments such as leggings, activewear, and cosplay,due to its stretch and firm hold. It also retains little water and dries very quickly, making it a great fabric for swimwear. This fabric is an excellent choice for Cosplayers looking to create superhero outfits, as it’s more opaque, and heavier, than the other Lycras, as well as remains breathable and cool.
Frequently asked questions on Slinky Lycra Matte 210gsm:
What’s the difference between 'Slinky Matt Lycra', 'Heavy Matt Lycra' and 'Lycra Sheen'?
Slinky Matt Lycra has a shock, brilliant white base tone in comparison to the Sheen and Heavy Matt’s warmer cream tones. Slinky Matt Lycra is also more opaque than the thinner Lycra Sheen, especially when wet, making it perfect for swimwear. Heavy Matt Lycra is thicker than Slinky and has reduced elasticity and stretch.
What does ‘4-Way Stretch’ mean?
Simply put, a 4-Way Stretch fabric is one that stretches in all directions: widthways along the weft, along the length way warp threads, as well as diagonally across the bias. 2-way stretch fabrics, such as our Jersey Stretch, only stretch widthways along the weft (also known as a selvage-to-selvage stretch) and are taut along the warp. Special care should be taken when sewing 4-Way Stretch fabrics, as they can be challenging to work with.
I've ordered Matt Lycra 140gsm from you before. Do you still offer this product?
We’ve replaced 140gsm Matt Lycra with the new Slinky Matt Lycra 210gsm because we think it’s a great product with a wider variety of uses than the original Matt. If you have any questions about the Lycra range, or want to request a new fabric, feel free to contact our knowledgeable customer service team or try a test print.
