The resistance of electrolycra

I was shown electrolycra recently and initially as you stretch it the resistance increases, which I think is due to the silver in the lycra not being able to shortcircuit as the lycra seperates out. However if you keep stretching the electrolycra eventually you reach a critical point at which the resistance decreases again. Why does the resistance decrease after this apparent critical point of stretching?
