Bengaline is a stretchy fabric with a crosswise rib made from textile fibers (as rayon, nylon, cotton, or wool) often in combination with polyester and lycra. Great for form fitting pants, skirts and dresses.
Our Bengaline is high in viscose content mixed with Nylon and Lycra. Please be aware when ordering the stretch is parallel with the grain (opposite to the usual cross grain stretch). It wont stretch at all in the cross grain direction. It is often the fabric used in stretchy smart trousers found in ready to wear.
