Scuba fabric is a type of double knit made from polyester and spandex, with a very fine gauge thread, and smooth texture. It’s a little springy, very smooth and has a nice drape to it. This dress fabric should not be confused with neoprene which is a thicker synthetic rubber and fabric hybrid that is more durable, flexible and is often used for wetsuits.
Scuba is ideal for evening dresses, skirts & accessories
