DSS Braided Elastic 3/8 Inch

  • DSS Braided Elastic

    Product Description

    made-in-usa-america.jpgDSS Braided Elastic 3/8 inch | 10 mm

    Quantity = number of yards.

    DSS Braided is a high quality polybraid elastic made in USA by the same mill that does our Baby Soft Diaper Elastic. 65% Polypropylene 35% Rubber.

    What makes our elastic better for babies? A general purpose braided elastic like Stretchrite is stiff and firm - it is sold in big box stores for all sorts of sewing and craft projects. DSS Braided has a special soft finish. This lets it stretch out more easily, so it is extra gentle on baby legs. Try it yourself and see!

    Sewing: If you plan to apply the elastic with a casing method, use toggles on the elastic, or sew (tack) down just the ends of the elastic - DSS Braided is the elastic you should choose. Be sure to leave a 1 inch tail of elastic at each end, past the point where you tacked it.

    Latex Allergy: Baby soft elastic contains natural rubber latex, if you need latex-free elastic choose Lastin instead.

    Also sold by the 144 yard spool.

    How does DSS Braided compare to Baby Soft elastic?

    Baby Soft -

    • stretches out to a fine webbing
    • gentle on baby legs yet durable
    • has special sewing requirements

    DSS Braided -

    • narrows when stretched
    • made with a special soft finish
    • can be sewn by any method


    They are both great diaper elastics!

    1. Durable 4 Star Review

      Nice, strong elastic, SO MUCH better than the Walmart stuff... It'd be nice though if you didn't have to leave such a large tab to keep it from unraveling.

    2. (FINALLY!) A Company with an Honest Description! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 21st Jun 2014

      When DSS says this stuff is better than the "big-box brand polybraid", they were actually telling the truth (unlike some of the other companies that bolster their product's quality!)
      DSS's polybraid is sooooooo much softer and of such a better quality than every single other polybraid we've tried!! Our son has an odd-shaped body due to being born extremely premature and his comfort against his sensitive skin is of great importance to us. The elastics -- both the Babysoft knit elastic and the DSS polybraid -- DSS sells is our answer to the terrible digging-in-the-thighs most other elastics do to DS. DH could tell the difference right away and he barely spends a second paying attention to DS's dipes!
      Never mind the fact DSS has amazing service and we're so happy to have found them. We will be doing most of our shopping here from here on out. Now, if only I could get them to carry all the other stuff DS needs on a regular basis ;-)

      I love this elastic. It is very easy to sew with, stretches great and doesn't warp or fold. I use it in pocket diapers and in a couple of necklines and waists for a toddler's clothes. Very durable and high quality.

      Great price, and seems to be working well so far in the diapers that I make.
