Tricot with Shine is tightly woven, stretches on the width not the length and is between 104″ and 109″ wide. It is used for Aerial Yoga Hammocks and for Aerial Dance.
We test our fabrics, and also use our products in our classes and performances. Some people learn on the Tricot and are comfortable with this, others learn first on the interlock and prefer the stretch offered. If you are working in a very high ceiling all the fabric will seem to have more stretch. If you have a very low ceiling, the Tricot with some stretch, or Tricot with shine is recommended. If you want to strip your fabric making it more narrow, we recommend using sharp scissors.
Turquoise Tricot with Shine will fade if EXPOSED TO sunlight for just ONE HOUR. Jade fades in 2 hours, and Coral and Orange are also UV sensitive. If your fabric is near a window with a lot of sunlight coming in, then these colors will fade. The other colors are more UV stable, but it is best to NOT expose your fabric to sunlight indoors or outdoors.
The strength of the fabric is not damaged, but they are less attractive when they fade from the sun.
