This is wonderful fabric for your athletic wear. It has a neat embossed detail in an interconnected pattern which the manufacturer has called spiderwebs. I'm not gonna lie, this doesn't look like spiderwebs to me, but it definitely reminds me of any number of sci-fi space battle shields". Is it more like Q's Encounter at Farpoint thingy, or is it more like the shields that the Nova Corp creates in Guardians of the Galaxy? You tell me, and we can happily argue about any space battles you like.
Right, the fabric. It's extremely stretchy with great recovery. It is durable, fast-drying, static-free, wrinkle proof, moisture-wicking and anti-bacterial.
That's not even the most amazing thing about this fabric. ChitoSante is a cutting-edge, environmentally friendly treatment that has been developed using Chitosan. Chitosan is a natural biomass made from (I'm not making this up) crab and/or shrimp shells. Yes, really. The future is HERE. ChitoSante is created when Chitosan is combined with textile fibres. It is safe for people with shellfish allergies as it contains no proteins. It's biodegradable, too. Basically a magic fabric?

Fabric is priced and sold by the 1/4 metre. We cut multiple 1/4 metres continuously. For example; 2 units is 1/2m, 3 units is 3/4m, 4 units is a full metre, 5 units is 1.25m. A single 1/4 metre will be cut as a fat quarter, unless you request a skinny quarter. Fat Quarters are half the width of the fabric x 0.5m, whereas Skinny Quarters are the full width of the fabric x 0.25m. We do this so you can order just as much fabric as you need, to decrease fabric wastage.
