Since research is such a hot topic (as of yesterday), I thought to throw this one out there. The question is posed by a reporter so no remuneration is possible. The question is:
What percentage of clothing made today contains stretch (lycra/spandex) versus five to ten years ago? I’m trying to figure out what the impact of stretch knit fabrics is on the clothing industry today.
If I were permitted to broaden the question, I’d wonder what the percentage is today versus thirty years ago. Does anyone have any idea how to find the answer to this question? If you can help, you will have my undying gratitude.
