Light Tearaway Stabilizer featuring Partially Water-Soluble Fibers
Embellish™ Fusible Dissolvable Tearaway is for the use of stabilizing fabric when using open-work embroidery designs on lightweight cotton, linen and batiste fabrics. In addition to machine embroidery, it’s perfect for stabilizing heirloom quality fabric when adding decorative stitches and wing-needle work. This tearaway away is manufactured using partial tear away stabilizer plus water-soluble stabilizer, leaving the right part of your design stabilized without bulk, resulting in very little stabilizer showing through lightweight fabrics.
Use this fusible version to prevent stretching while hooping your fabric. The added fusible prevents the fabric from shifting while embroidering, resulting in perfect outline stitches. Also available in a non-fusible version.
To use Embellish™ Fusible Dissolvable Tearaway:
Fuse one layer of the stabilizer to the back of the fabric/item using a piece at least one inch larger than the outer parameter of the hoop to insure proper stabilization. *Important – Use a low iron temperature. Do NOT touch the surface of your iron to Embellish™ Fusible Dissolvable Tearaway, press from the fabric side or use a press cloth (muslin or cotton).
Hoop the stabilized fabric. Try to achieve “tight as a drum” tension.
Embroider the design. *Tip – If the design is denser than 8,000 stitches or if it is a poorly digitized design (too many stitches for design size), float an additional layer of Embellish™ Dissolvable Tearaway (non-fusible) between the hoop and the bed of the machine for each additional 8,000 stitches for added support!
Remove the hoop from the machine and from the garment.
To remove Embellish™ Fusible Dissolvable Tearaway, dampen the back of the stabilizer and gently pull away without distorting the design. Another added benefit of this product is the water-soluble portion eliminates the countless hours of picking out stabilizer remnants. Stabilizer remnants will continue to wash out in the laundry with a mild detergent and agitation.
**NOTE: All irons heat differently. The iron temperature given above is a starting point. If you find that you are not getting a good fuse, slowly increase your iron's temperature until you achieve a good bond between the fabric and stabilizer.
