***FIRE DAMAGE*** This fabric was involved in a fire! Although the flames never reached where the fabric was stored, there is smoke and water damage. This may include dark stains, discoloration, mildew, and a wood-smoke smell. While we have had success with much of the soot and smell coming out of the fabric after a hot wash, we do not guarantee that this damage will come out. Mildew damage is permanent.
All PUL will now be ordered in 20"x Full Width Cuts. If you would like a meter (39.5"x full width) you will add "2" to your cart and the price will automatically update to the meter price of $15.50 and you will receive a 40" x full width continuous cut or if you would like 1.5 meters you can add "3" to your cart and the cut will be continuous!!!
Full width of fabric is approximately 56-58". Fabric that is 55" or more without flaws will be considered 1st quality. Flaws such as dirt, small lamination creases, or ink smudges along selvage may occur and will only be considered a second if it extends into print reducing the issue free size of the fabric to LESS than 55" width.
Please note that colors on your screen may vary from those in hand on fabric.
Material: 1 mil poly PUL
What is Poly PUL?
A 100% Polyester knit interlock laminated with polyurethane film. The polyurathane or PUL is a waterproof yet breathable layer applied to the back of the fabric. Many thicknesses are available. The most common is 1 mil thick film as it still allows stretch and a subtile fabric movement while still being waterproof. PUL was originally designed to be used in the medical field to replace disposable products. Due to the original intent of PUL holds up very well with the extreme amount of repeated washing's cloth diapers require.
What is PUL used for?
-Reusable Diapers (baby, adult, animal, etc)
-Waterproof diaper pail liners
-Waterproof mattress pads
-Ladies hygiene products (reusable maxi pads)
How is PUL sewn?
-Always use a ballpoint needle (sharp needles will create large holes and most likely leak)
-Always use 100% Polyester thread (cotton thread will wick moisture and cause leaking)
We suggest using a walking foot for sewing on PUL. In lieu of a walking foot, however, one can use tissue paper in between the feed dogs and PUL
-PUL is 100% Polyester and will not shrink, no need to prewash
