If you are looking for reflective fabric, cloth or material this short video review of the retro reflective fabrics that we hold in stock should help you decide if it is suitable for your needs.
It will also help the viewer see the thickness and rigidity of the cloth and let you see that it is perfect for any sewing application whether by hand or machine.
Reflective fabric is not waterproof by default though it appears hydrophobic when new. This is due to the tightness of how the microscopic beads are pressed together. In time however with wear and tear the hydrophobic properties diminish and water is able to penetrate the fabric.
You can apply waterproof coatings though this may reduce the reflectivity of the fabric so you are advised to check prior to proceeding with your project through to completion.
