Trevira-Bioactive contains fibres with silver ions firmly integrated within them, which have an antimicrobial effect and thus inhibit the growth of bacteria. This ensures the fabric remains permanently fresh after many washes and is odour free. Trevira-Bioactive is manufactured as a continuous microfilament with many tiny capillaries which gives good filter performance. Albstoffe Protect-Me is perfect for tops, sportswear, activewear.
Sew with a ball point/jersey 75/11 needle using either a small zig zag (2.5mm length, 0.5mm width) or a stretch stitch. Do not stay stitch stabilise with a fusible or sew in tape. Tip...if the seam is wavy lengthen your stitch, if the seam is puckering then shorten your stitch.Insert cotton tape into seams that are not intended to stretch, for example the shoulder seams. Use a 4mm twin stretch needle to hem the garment, allow the garment to hang for a few hours before hemming or you can stabalise the hem with a strip of interfacing or Steam-a-seam fusing tape.
The perfect interfacing for this fabric is H609 which has the the flexibility and stretch ensuring that the drape and feel of the fabric is not compromised
