Fixation is a core-spun, stretch, and machine washable cotton yarn suitable for close-fitted sweaters and foundation garments, including swim suits. Everything, from tops and summer pullovers to lingerie and lingerie-style articles can be knitted or crocheted with this yarn: bra and bikini, gartini, girdles, panties, camisoles, corsets, maillots, etc., as well as
shorts, leggings, stockings, and socks. Kids' clothing is suitable as well.
Fixation is available in a gorgeous range of solid, spay-dyed, and effect colours.
* Tip: For best results, knit while the yarn is relaxed, do not stretch it on needles. Before making a garment, please do not hesitate to knit a swatch to calculate the exact tension for the needles or crochet hook you use.
Known facts: Lycra is a brand name of the Spandex fiber produced by DuPont™(USA). It has excellent stretch and recovery properties (it can be stretched over 500% without breaking), can be stretched repeatedly and still recover its original length. It is more durable than rubber, soft, smooth and supple. Even more, Spandex is resistant to body oils, perspiration, lotions or detergents, has no static or pilling problems. - source: Pocket Textile Expert, I.A. Shaikh, Georgia, USA.
