High performance fabrics for sports apparel and sporting teams uniforms

24 August 2010

The team at Captivations realizes the importance of your team having the right uniform that suits your code. Netball players need light-weight lycra that allows them to move easily and keeps perspiration wicked away from the body.

High contact sports need their sportswear to withstand the intense pressure that comes in any competition.

That’s why, at Captivations, we source the highest-quality fabrics match the sporting code that you play.

So what are the differences between the different high performance sports fabrics.

High Tensile Strength
