Lastin Clear Elastic 3/8 Inch

  • Lastin Clear Elastic

    Product Description

    Lastin Clear Elastic  Quantity = number of yards.

    100% Polyurethane. Imported.

    Width  3/8" | 10 mm wide. (Use our 1/4" Lastin when you need a more gentle stretch.)

    The original, branded product made by Mobilon of Japan. The perfect Lastin thickness for cloth diaper sewing and the highest quality clear elastic on the market. Will not break like other clear elastics even when nicked. Latex-free and CPSIA certified lead-free.

    Very durable and long-lasting. Thinner than traditional elastics with a lightly textured surface that makes it easy to grip and sew.

    Uses include: diapers, diaper covers, and more. Great for swim diapers because it's not affected by chlorine.

    Clear to match any color. Will not yellow when exposed to sunlight. Soft to the touch, will not chafe or irritate skin. Proven to resist seawater, oil, urine, light acids, perspiration, cosmetics, and solvents. Continues to perform under extreme hot and cold conditions. Over 320% stretch with excellent memory; draws in as much or as little as you need.

    Make sure you have a fresh needle with no burrs. Sew Lastin along the entire length of the elastic, stretching the elastic as you sew it in place. Use a 3-step zigzig stitch. Regular zigzag stitch will work but make sure needle goes through elastic and not just across it. With nimble fingers you can also insert into a serged seam as you sew. For a gentle gather, just start sewing and stretch as you go. For a firm gather, or when sewing thick fabrics, pre-stretch the elastic several times, then sew in and stretch as you go. Pre-stretching allows you to pull the elastic out farther, resulting in a tighter gather.

    Warranty Information

    Cut to purchaser's length and not returnable, except in the case of store error.

    1. Not the best 2 Star Review

      Posted by on 30th Dec 2014

      I have used this elastic for a couple of my diapers and I don't like using it. The elastic usually snaps on me and I have to take diaper apart and do it again. Like braided elastic better.

    2. HIGH quality 5 Star Review

      I have used this lastin for years now and compared to others this lastin quality is high. I like lastin because it lasts longer than polybraid.

    5. Excellent product 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 3rd Sep 2012

      This stuff is amazing, I've been dealing with Lastin for several years, and have had breakage issues several times. I don't know what's different about this stuff but it's much stronger and denser than lastin I've purchased previously, the needle holes don't stretch, it doesn't break, it's great!
