Browse our selection of carded elastic, and elastic available on the roll as cut lengths.  The width of the elastic gives an indication of its strength; wider elastic will be stronger while narrow elastic should be used for projects requiring less tension.  Knitted elastic tends to be soft and stretchy and is a really versatile elastic.  Woven elastic is stronger and is more resistant to rolling or twisting.  Clear elastic is often used to stabilise jersey fabric and in swimwear.
