Mermaid Tail Details on Fabrics - Know what to expect

We test our fabrics so that we are offering the best and so that you know what to expect!

All Fabrics from every  mermaid tail maker wear with use on concrete, in chlorine, and in sun.  We tell you how each behaves.

Fabrics are 80% nylon, 20% spandex (unless otherwise noted). They stretch a lot and can "pick" like swimsuits on concrete.

We reject many fabrics that we see others using because we do not want to sell fabrics that wear excessively and unattractively!  

Take care of your tail - don't push off concrete surfaces because that will wear holes in your tail and will wear off foil sparkles.
