I'm really interested in trying to make some yoga pants out of stretch bengaline, but I can't seem to find any! Is it only available in Australia? If so, is there a good online source?

Stretch bengaline is a stretch woven. Good for pants, but I personally would not make yoga pants from it. You would be better off with a knit for yoga pants. If you want stretch bengaline still I would substitute a good RPL - rayon poly lycra blend = stretch woven.

Others may have different thoughts on this...

I am with Sue also, Bengaline does not have the great stretch for yoga pants in my opinion.. Why not check out Ponte as it a better stretch and very comfortable to wear.. Spotlight has it in a nice weight at the moment..

That's good to know! I saw a youtube video that showed a very stretchy piece of this fabric...sorry for the confusion

I'm with Sue on this. Someone else wanted stretch bengeline for some Style Arc pants and we don't seem to have it here, but I recommended RPL as well. For yoga pants one of the wicking knit fabrics or cotton lycra works well.

I purchased some stretch bengaline from Joann's about 6 months ago.....was surprised when I saw it and I don't know if they still have it. It was with/close to the suiting fabrics and was labled 'stretch bengaline'. I seem to recall there was only 2 or 3 colors and I got the brown. It is definately a stretch woven and I wanted it for a yoga pants pattern also, BUT, I did NOT plan on wearing for yoga or exercise of any kind. It worked well for what I intended which was a decent pair of pants made from a yoga pants pattern. I actually really like them.

Thanks, I'll have to look more carefully at my JoAnn's!
