Our clear elastic is the gold standard for quality diaper elastic, made by Mobilon of Japan, and marketed under the brand name Lastin. The perfect Mobilon 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.
Cut to purchaser's length and not returnable, except in the case of store error.
