Baby Soft Braided is a high quality polybraid elastic. 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. Baby Soft 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.
Baby soft elastic contains natural rubber latex, if you need latex-free elastic choose Lastin instead.

This elastic is sturdy and tough. Perfect for my diapers and they keep their form since they are stiffer and do not relax like other elastics do.
Too stiff, not very stretchy

This elastic was not nearly the quality that I am used to. It only stretched about 2/3 of what my other does and it very stiff.
Elastic is cut to customer length and may not be returned, except in case of store error.
