PUL is a specialised fabric, likened to thin polyester swim fabric with a durable thin WHITE laminate coating, strongly bonded to the underside of the fabric. This fabric offers a great option for making projects that require a high level of water resistance or protection from mess or moisture. 

Multiple qtys will be cut as a continuous length where possible. If there are any discrepancies when we receive the fabric that prevent this from happening, we will endeavour to contact you prior to finalising your order to discuss options with you.
COMPOSITION: 100% Polyester
WIDTH: 150cm (+/-5cm)
WEIGHT: 180 gsm
PLEASE NOTE PRIOR TO PURCHASE: Pre-washing is recommended to avoid fabric shrinking on your finished product. Please allow up to 10% shrinkage on all fabrics. We do try and keep our cuts generous to allow for some of the fabric shrinkage that may occur.

PLEASE ALLOW: and understand there may be variations with ink colours between print runs and between different fabric bases. Colours may differ between your monitor or phone display and the finished print. This is something that while we do try to minimise occurring, can happen with custom digital printing and is out of our control. This is not considered a fabric fault and will not be treated as such.

PUL NOTE- Due to the manufacturing process of this product, there may be a residual overhang of laminate left after the bonding process is complete. If this is the case, simply trim and discard any waste and dispose of thoughtfully. While we will endeavour to tidy any fabrics up prior to supplying them, this is not considered a fault, nor will it be regarded as such.


What are some ideas I can make with this fabric?

Nappy/diaper shells, bag linings, change mat covers, art smocks, bibs, breast pads, reusable menstral pads, wet bags, high chair and car seat covers, pram liners and more.

Our PUL fabric is lovely and soft with a great durable density making it strong and reliable whilst still functional and pliable.


WASHING AND CARE OF PUL FABRIC - (use as a guide only)

You may pre-wash PUL the same way you would intend to wash your finished product but it isn’t required.

We recommend machine washing fabrics with like colours on a cool, gentle cycle. Avoid any harsh detergents, bleach or softeners. White vinegar works great to retain absorbency and softness while baking soda can help to deodorise any stubborn smells from the fabric. Do not wring fabrics out, simply shake out creases and line dry immediately after washing, in shade and inside out to best retain fabric colour and integrity.

PUL can be washed up to 60C and tumble dried on a cooler setting.

Do not iron.

Whilst PUL can be laundered up to 90C and tumble dried on a hotter setting, we do not recommend this as it may not cause immediately effect to the fabric, it will ultimately deteriorate the PUL integrity and shorten its overall lifespan.



PUL can be a little more tricky than knit or woven to sew, but from all reports, most people think our PUL is easy and a dream to sew with.

Some tips to get you going with PUL are-

Skip the prewash if you choose as it’s not needed with pul as there will be no shrinkage with this fabric.

Use fabric weights or a projector when cutting your patterns. Using pins is not advised as piercing the laminate will compromise the fabrics water resistance. Use a rotary cutter and self healing mat so as to remove the need to lift or move the fabric when cutting.

If there are any deep creases in the fabric, these may be removed by placing the pul, laminate side down on an ironing board and using a thin piece of cotton fabric placed over the PUL print, lightly iron on a synthetic setting. Avoid ironing directly onto the pul or the laminate side and do not hold heat in one area for too long. Always test on a corner or edge first.

Use fabric clips to secure pul when sewing instead of using pins.

Use a good quality polyester thread with a small ballpoint or stretch needle and a slightly longer stitch to help get the fabric feeding through your machine. Cotton thread may absorb and draw moisture, making it counter productive to retaining any water resistance. Cotton thread may also mould if wet bags are not dried thoroughly and moisture gets trapped.

If you find the pul too slippery when sewing, try using a walking foot or Teflon foot. Alternatively if you have neither you could try sewing with a piece of tissue paper underneath the laminate to give the feed dogs something to drag through the machine. This can then simply be removed and thrown away after sewing.


Have fun and happy sewing!
