Touchtape 1 inch
Many diaper makers like to use Touchtape as their diaper closure. Touchtape closures are quick to put on and take off, easy for many caregivers to use, and durable. The name Velcro is often used to refer to all hook and loop tape, among which Touchtape is an excellent brand. Touchtape has many benefits:
- Easy and fast to simply sew on
- Laundry tabs stay fastened in the wash
- Does not fray
- 100% nylon
- Machine wash and dry
1 inch wide.
Sold by the yard. Quantity = number of yards
Hook side and loop side sold separately. Loop is softer. Hook has bristles that grab and stick to the loop.
We cannot guarantee matching dye lots in the hook side and loop side of any color. The Touchtape arrives to us with slight color variations from the manufacturer.
How much do I need?
Width of the diaper front + Width of laundry tabs=amount of loop x number of diapers you are making
Width of closure tabs=amount of hook x number of diapers you are making
How do I sew Touchtape?
- Use a universal or ballpoint needle (size 80/12 or smaller) and polyester thread
- Sew inside the outer edge with a straight or zigzag stitch
- It may seem like the Touchtape is too bristley to sew, but the presser foot will smash it down as you go

I love how sticky this stuff is. Yes, it can still be un-done by a curious (or mischievous) baby/toddler, but it takes more effort than other stuff on some store-bought cloth diapers. Doesn't scratch the tummy either.
Very sticky :)

I love how sticky this is. So much better than other types I've used and other types that have come on pre-made/store bought diapers. My toddler loves to take diapers off that are velcro, but for some reason she doesn't even attempt to or think about taking the diapers off that have this as the closure. I used to only want snaps for closures, but I'm quickly converting to touchtape :)
thank you for great products!!!

Great great great products! super excited they are eco friendly and MADE IN THE USA!!! (love that fact!)
Very excited to be supporting a US based company!
Fabric is beautiful and high quality.
Only suggestions...the Circle Play Print is way more purple in person than it shows on the listing image.
Also, bummed that I hadn't seen the free gift when you spend $15 or more. I spent $185.32 (after a $10 coupon). Would be nice if you didn't have to add it to the cart, rather just automatically ship with $15+ orders.
love it! 1inch

I have used different brands for my AIO diapers, this is the best I have found, I recently have had to replace the other brands I've used because it started to not stay closed... Love this hook & loop very strong , I round the corners before I sew, so the corners don't end up poking my baby, I use a secure zig zag stitch and have had no issues with it curling like the other brands and it's cheaper too
prefer 1.5in tiuch tape

I am not a fan of this product. For some reason, the hook tabs wouldn't lay flat on the loop belly panel. The edges would curl resulting in a non secure diaper closure. I have used the 1.5in touch tape and that worked wonderfully!
Stronger than my thread

I love this stuff! I have to sew around each piece twice to make sure it stays because the touchtape sticks to itself so well that I have accidentally ripped it off a diaper...
very good quality

This was exactly what I expected. Very good quality.
Perfect size for small and newborn diapers. Smaller & Softer than Babyville Touchtape

I like this much better than the Babyville touch tape I have been using for small and newborn diapers. The size seems more appropriate and the loop is much softer. The reason I do not give it five stars is I would still like the edges of the hook to be softer. If you don't round the corners it is actually quite sharp.
Hook does not snag on everything else!!! ;-)

I love this hook and loop! I wish it came in tabs. I love that the hook does not snag the PUL on my diapers. I make loop laundry tabs on the wings, but I honestly do not have to use them. The loop is great too. Awesome product!
Changed my mind

From the writer of the review titled "Exactly what I DIDN'T want".
Upon close examination, the DSS hook and loop seems to be the same as the cheap stuff, but TIME is the true test. I made a diaper with DSS hook and loop on one side and Babyville on the other around 6 months ago. Now the BV stuff is almost trash, and the DSS is only slightly worn and still hookin' great. So sorry. :P
