This is the softer, less firm elastic that is suitable for mask making
Knitted elastic is made by knitting the fibers together. Knitted elastic tends to be softer than braided or woven elastic, and it retains its width when stretched. It also works well even when pierced by needles, so it’s a good choice for sew on applications. It rolls more than woven elastic, but less than braided elastic. Since this elastic is softer, it’s suitable for light to midweight fabrics, but doesn’t have the grip needed for heavier fabrics. With knitted elastic, you may want to consider cutting the elastic slightly shorter than the finished measurement in order to have it grip properly, particularly when using it for waistbands or lingerie.
