Light Econyl Swim & Sports Lycra Fabric in Bright Navy

Meet the new 2024 addition to our recycled Econyl sports lycra fabric range – Bright Navy activewear fabric. This shade is very saturated navy colour, but it’s not too dark.

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.

This fabric works great too for all high performance activewear such as leggings, tops, sports bras and even shapewear.

One side has is a bit more shiny, other side is more matt. There is no right or wrong, chose whichever you prefer.
