What's the difference between a laminated fabric and PUL? I thought PUL stood for polyurethane LAMINATE. When a WAHM sends out a fabric to get laminated, is the process different than for PUL? Is it just that the L layer is thicker on "laminated" fabrics? If memory serves, you can have thick or thin PUL - like the day vs. night bumpy covers.
Thoughts? Insights? Free samples?
OK, am I about to get slammed with the facts?
I think it would be most accurate to describe PUL's when saying "PUL". For instance, "made with PUL Polyester in solid colors", or "made with 2 MIL PUL Woven Cotton Prints", or "made with PUL Nylon Prints". KWIM? This would make it clear to people who have never seen the product, what it will feel like and how it will function.
Oh, and most of the 100% polyester solids WAHM's use come from Fabrite already laminated, that's why most everyone has the same standard solid colors.

I'm confused. I recently bought what I thought was PUL but when it arrived it was laminated, like plastic coated. I wanted to make wet bags with it but my daughter says the inside (unlaminated) side will go mouldy if it stays wet. When she had MCN made with PUL they weren't 'plasticie' on the outside. Can someone set me straight, do I have to look for PUL not classified as laminate or what. I dont want to keep buying more fabric until I stumble upon the correct type. Thanks
Do you have a joanns near you? They carry Babyville pul there, so you can see upfront what you are buying. I've used it it and it was pretty good stuff. It isn't in the normal fabric area, I think near the little baby hats and appliques. You can probably ask.
If you need to purchase online, maybe verybaby.com or diapersewingsupplies.com.
