The stretch factor...one way stretch, two way stretch, four way stretch? When it comes to stretch fabric no two companies will give you the same information on what type of stretch your fabric is going to have. It is important to either call the company and ask or buy a swatch to check and make sure the terms match what you need!

One way stretch- means a fabric that stretches in only one direction, and usually not very much. This is also interchanged with the term mechanic stretch. Mechanical stretch refers to a fabric has has inherent stretch due to the way the fibers are woven and not due to a knitting process or to a lycra/spandex mix.

Sometimes one way stretch is also used to denote a two way stretch fabric. Which can be very confusing and is not an accurate label.

Two way stretch stretches two ways- across the fabric from selvedge to selvedge, and diagonally. This fabric can be a knit, or a woven, woven's usually have only a little bit, 5% or less spandex fiber woven into it. The knit goods can have as much spandex fiber as a four way stretch but still stretches the two ways. I have seen this term has also been know to be used for four way stretch fabric as well. I have seen this term used for this more in European fabric sites. Two way stretch works best for garments where you need stretch around the body but don't need much or any up and down. Garments like bras, lingerie, ball gown dress and other garments that are not required to go completely around the length of the torso do well with this fabric!

Four way stretch, also called all way stretch does just that..it stretches all ways selvedge to selvedge, diagonal and along the length of the yard. It always has some blend of lycra/spandex to it and the more it has the stretchier it becomes. This is usually the most ideal stretch for tight fitting garments that have to stretch around the body as well as around the length of the torso, leotards, unitards, swimwear, body suits all fall under this category .

At Designer Alley Fabrics we call our fabric that stretches in all directions "four way stretch". Fabric that stretches from selvedge to selvedge and diagonal we call "two way stretch". We never interchange the terms, so you know exactly the type of stretch before you buy!!!
