Now this part was probably my favourite aspect out of the entire project. I called upon the wonder skills of my Mother over at Textiles Matters who kindly tested the capability of the SCOBY fabric to hold a stitch. Well neither disappointed!
I plan to test thee strength of the fabric using a tensile testing machine. This applies a ‘pulling’ force to an object and determines what’s known as the ‘ultimate tensile strength’. Essentially, this is the point where the most force is withstood before eventual failure.
I’d love to know if you’ve given this process a go at home and how you got on with it!
