Light Econyl Swim & Sports Lycra Fabric in Blackcurrant

Perfectly delicious shade of purple Blackcurrant is the latest 2024 addition to our recycled Econyl sports lycra fabric range.

Econyl fabric in Light is our lighter version of nylon fabric. If you are sewing swimwear with this stretchy fabric we would recommend either lining it with our econyl nylon lining or doubling up on the main fabric to give you all the support and coverage.

We love Faye swimsuit sewing pattern by Closet Core, check out our blog all about making this pattern in Baywatch Red Econyl lycra.

If you are sewing leggings or any other sportswear, you dont need to worry about lining, as this colour is very dark, opaque and squatproof.

£19.00 per metre

Availability: 2.5m in stock

The fabric is made from regenerated nylon fiber, it is chlorine resistant, sun cream and oil resistant as well as protects from UV.

The fabric retains its shape and most importantly is 100% squat proof as it is dyed through.

Eco credentials

Econyl is regenerated nylon fiber made entirely from old, discarded carpets and fishnets, which otherwise would have ended up in landfill. It is a brainchild of Italian nylon manufacturer Aquafil.
