Braided elastic is most often used in waistbands, sleeves, necklines and legbands. Often sewn in casing, it's also soft enough to contact the skin directly. As with all braided elastic, it becomes narrower when pulled and when sewn through, the needle pierces the rubber causing loss of stretch and recovery. Braided elastic is fabricated to be shrink resistant. Machine wash cold, low heat dry. - 68% polyester/ 32% rubber.
