Can I buy sports and performance fabrics at Spotlight?

Yes, if you want to make your own outfits for leisure, sports and gym use, you can now find all the right types of fabric here at Spotlight. Lycra, fleece, nylon and microfibre are among the fabrics on offer that you can use to make tees, tanks, shorts, pants, jackets, headbands and more. This can save you many dollars on shop-bought outfits, while at the same time ensuring that you have the fit, colour and style that you like.

What is cotton Lycra fabric used for?

Cotton Lycra fabric is a smooth knit fabric made up of natural cotton with a small percent of Spandex or Lycra. Cotton Lycra knit is known for its smooth feel, excellent stretch and recovery, and all-season comfort. It is often used for active and leisure wear as the stretch in the fabric makes it ideally suited for activities that require a lot of movement without restriction.

What about fleece fabrics?

Polyester fleece is a soft, fuzzy fabric used for sweaters, jackets, mittens, hats, blankets, and many other applications where a warm, wool-like material is needed. Polyester fleece is an extremely durable fabric that not only holds in warmth but resists moisture and dries quickly. Unlike many other synthetic woolly textiles, polyester fleece does not pill-bunch up into little balls after extended use. It is increasingly popular as a fashion fabric and has found a host of more specialised uses. It is particularly popular with sports people as it will add a soft, warm layer without adding much weight.

What else is included in the range?

Check out the microfibre fabric on offer. Microfibre fabric is often used for athletic wear, such as cycling jerseys, because the microfibre material wicks moisture (perspiration) away from the body, keeping the wearer cool and dry. Microfibre is also very elastic, making it suitable for swimwear, undergarments, and gym outfits.

Does Spotlight sell other fabrics as well?

Yes, the sports and performance fabrics are just one small part of the huge collection of fabrics on offer at Spotlight. As well as many different types of dressmaking and tailoring fabrics, you will also find curtain and blind fabrics, interior design and upholstery fabrics, waterproof fabrics, general purpose fabrics and craft fabrics here at Spotlight, all available by the metre for your projects, as well as some pre-cut fabrics for crafting, toy making and quilting.

What else should I know?

You will find everything you need to complete your project here at Spotlight, so browse the range today and take advantage of our great choice and excellent prices.
