I am looking for Krinkle chlorine resistant swimsuit fabric. Pembrook brand makes one and sells the ready made through Hanes online stores. Thank you in advance

needlenook fabrics in Wichita KS, Rainshed in Oregon (not sure if they have swimwear or just other specialty outdoor fabrics), Spandex House in NYC... There's another Spandex Something store in NYC also but can't recall exact name, sorry! I think Rose City Textiles in TX also sells some specialty fabrics like this.

Fabric.com sometimes has some interesting swimwear fabric, but my fave sources are Spandex House and Spandex World in NYC.

ETA, call the NYC stores and ask. I've always found the employees to be very helpful.
