Scuba is the fashion variety of the well known Neoprene material. A double knit fabric that is normally a poly which has been mixed with Lycra or Spandex. It has a very smooth texture and a fine gauge thread. Scuba fabric is very springy. If you were to look at a cut piece from the side – you could see empty space in the center – which creates that “bounce” like feel.
It is stretchy, smooth, and soft.
Scuba is almost impossible to wrinkle or crease – perfect to pack for a trip and incredibly comfortable!
You can machine wash scuba but be sure to use colder temperatures.
