Stretch Woven Fabrics

This page features a large selection of different styles of Stretch Woven fabrics.  Each style can be dramatically different from the other, which is why its important to consider what you will be using it for before choosing the style.

Can I Use a Stretch Woven Fabric When Woven is Called For?

Some of the Stretch Woven styles have a small amount of stretch.  Using these will not impact on the fit of the garment, other to add a bit of comfort.  It is important to check the SPECS and FEATURES tab below to see the degree of stretch for each style.  Those with significant stretch may cause the garment to be larger if it calls for ordinary woven fabrics, in which case you may need to make a smaller size. 

What is DWR?

Many styles have water-repellent finish (DWR means Durable Water Repellent). Water Repellent finishes are desirable especially when you are using them for outdoor adventures.  They are also good for travel clothes, because the finish can also repel stains, so less washing!  

Styles with a water repellent finish tend to stay cleaner as they resist spills, making the clothing well suited for travel.  The DWR finished styles remain breathable and comfortable even under active conditions.

When you click on the color icon each fabric will have DWR in the color name if it is water repellent.  It is also listed in the SPECS and FEATURES tab below.
