Elastic Bands

So last night I had a lesson in elastic bands.  There are three types knit, braided and woven.
Knit elastic is in expensive and popular  comes in a wide variety of tensions and thickness with a huge range of colors and sizes.
Braided elastic is made of polyester and rubber it's used for waistbands, sleeves, necklines and leg bands.   It is shrink resistant and stays unaffected by chlorine and salt water.
Woven elastic is in a crosswise and parallel ribbed pattern creating a window-pane effect used for suspenders, belts and keeps waistbands flat.
Now hopefully I can remember that next time I am helping a customer with elastic. :)  Off to make some ham and cheese muffin for my morning meeting.  :)
