Swim Lycra "Recycled VITA Xtra Life" - Rally Purple
Was $14/m, now half-price, only $7/m.
This beautifully smooth Lycra is made from recycled materials! Lightweight but strong, this fabric is perfect for swimwear.
New advanced recycled Carvico techno-fabric made with Econyl is 100% regenerated nylon and polyester fiber from post-consumer materials. Due to the latest yarn and knitting technologies, it is 20% flatter than basic Matt Nylon Lycra, yet still retains the same classic power and coverage.
Xtra Life LYCRA fiber resists fabric breakdown more than 5 times longer than average chlorine-resistant spandex. Fiber breakage can cause fabric breakdown very quickly. Garments made from Xtra Life LYCRA Fiber have no significant fiber breakage even after 240 hours of exposure.
