Scuba is a type of jersey (stretchy), it is formed by a double-knit construction, also known as double jersey, composed of spandex and polyester. Double knit means that this fabric was created with multiple sets of needles at once, connecting two layers of fabric together. Scuba material has a very smooth texture, a fine gauge thread, and a slightly springy feel to it. Despite its name, scuba knit is not meant for scuba diving or swimming – though its fabric is styled after the neoprene material used in creating scuba divers’ wet suits. Do not mistake this fabric for neoprene. Often featuring modern and photo-realistic designs that are printed onto the fabric, scuba is a modern addition to the fabric world. Scuba fabric works ideally for both form-fitting dresses and longer, draping gowns. This modern fabric holds dye very well, and so it can be adorned with all kinds of bold, beautiful prints to fit your unique taste.
