Scuba fabric - the ultimate guide for sewing this fabric -
Scuba is not the same as neoprene although they share some properties. Scuba is a type of double knit made from polyester and spandex, with a very fine gauge thread, and smooth texture. It’s a little spongy but feels very smooth. It comes in various thicknesses with the light weight ones having a nice drape to it. Medium to thicker scuba fabrics are used to make garments that need structure and volume.
