Let's take a look at some basic knowledge about mechanical stretch fabrics based on the experience of those who use them. Maybe you don't need it now, but knowing about it is always helpful for family life in the future.

   The first point is about its tensile properties

  Let's look at the two main aspects of a stretch associated with fabrics:

1) The ability of a fabric to extend in length without breaking or damage.

   This property is expressed as a percentage to indicate that the length of the fabric can be increased by this amount. The stretch percentage for a knitted fabric will be for the horizontal or vertical direction of the fabric. For example, if you have a piece of fabric that is 100 cm wide and stretched at 30% horizontally, you should be able to stretch the width of the fabric to 130 cm without damaging the fabric. This is very important.

2) The resilience of the fabric, which can spring back to its original shape after length extension.

   Recovery describes the pull back when you stretch the fabric, which helps the fabric return to its natural state before stretching. This is usually where spandex comes into play.

   The second point is how the fabric extends its length: in order to understand how the fabric's length extends, we need to take a closer look at its structure. For now, let's ignore any innate stretching of the yarns in the fabric. Without the stretch within the yarn, we would be left with mechanical stretch due to the way the yarn is arranged in the construction fabric. Many fabrics are either due to their own characteristics, or they have been exploited by blending and other chemical methods to develop fabric extensibility.
