Knit Tubing

Circular knit tubing is a seamless tube which is sold by the pound and is sized based on flat width and stretch.  Our tubing ranges in widths from 1-3/4” to 12” flat.  The stretch is the maximum size you would like to be able to extend the tube width.  We don’t use the term elasticity as it infers that the tubing will snap back to shape like a rubber band.  Once stretched, the fabric will go back to (or close to) its original size but it is not immediate.

We have the ability to alter the flat width and stretch by changing the needle count and yarn size.  Our stock yarns include:  cotton, polyester, polypropylene and acrylic.  Some of the more common specialty yarns we can provide are Kevlar and Nomex.  Flame retardant and polyester/cotton blends are also available.  (Special order yarns have reasonable minimum order requirements.)

In addition to our knitting department, we also have a complete sewing area allowing us to make bags, covers, filters and sleeves.

Our capabilities range from large production to small orders because we inventory a wide variety of yarn.  At Murray Fabrics, there is no such thing as “standard tubing” – we manufacture what you want to your individual specifications.
