    Posted: 15 Nov 2016 at 1:42am
Recently I came across a denim fabric. The technical construction of the fabric is as follows :

1. Warp - 2/30 s cotton
2. Weft - 150/144/2 PBT yarn with 70 Spandex.
3. Weave Pattern - 3/1 satin weave
4. Process flow : singeing, mercerizing, heat-setting at 145 C and @ 45MPM and finally Sanforized using Bicosoft foam.

The problem which i found was "COLOR MIGRATION" onto the weft.  It was very prominent after heat setting. I wasn't able to bypass heat setting as the fabric had elastene, which can be stabilized only through heat setting.

I would sincerely look forward for advice  in getting a fabric using PBT ELASTENE yarns in the weft without color migration.

Hi jerome,
I don't think that we have any members here with experience of stretch-denim. There's one chap called foxy who has vast experience in the field of fabric construction, if he can't help you out then you need to try another forum.
