Get ready for a load of fun in the sun with this collection of performance grade tricots! If you're in search of the perfect bathing suit material, tricot is the fabric for you. A tricot is a very thin/smooth textured knit consisting of fine or single yarns which form vertical whales on the surface and crosswise ribs on the back; thus resulting in a run-resistant knit. Tricots are often used for the construction of swimwear, underwear, sportswear and gloves. Unlike other tricots, this knit comes complete with higher compression capabilites great for activewear used in cycling, running and compression sleeves. With a remarkable amount of 4-way stretch and a matte finish, curves are no match for the elasticity of this high performance tricot. Surfs up!
