Stitch N Wash Tearaway Embroidery Stabilizer is a 1.5 oz tear away stabilizer that is ideal
for airy, open work type embroidery designs on light cottons
and linen. It is unique because it is made up of half soluble
and half non-soluble fibers. By wetting the design once
it is complete the stabilizer is easily torn away without
distorting stitches or harming the delicate fibers of
heirloom quality fabrics. The design will retain the non-soluble
part of the stabilizer throughout the life of the garment
keeping the embroidery looking smooth. Any remnants of
Stitch N Wash Tearaway Embroidery Stabilizer around the design will wash out in the
laundry. This product is now available in 8 ½"
x 11" sheets for feeding through a printer for paper/foundation-piecing
designs and templates. Try the new fusible version of
Stitch N Wash when doing embroidery on loosely woven versions
of the fabrics mentioned above that tend to shift during
the hooping and embroidery process. By fusing the Stitch
N Wash on to the back of the fabric, it will aid in keeping
the fabric taut. This version also eliminates the need
for basting or messy spray adhesives.
Easy to remove from around delicate embroidery
or machine stitching.
Won't shadow through light colored fabrics.
Eliminates countless hours of "picking"
out stabilizer remnants.
Super stable and will support about 8,000 stitches
if the design is well-digitized.
To use Stitch N Wash:

it is a poorly digitized design (too many stitches
for designs size), float an additional layer of Floriani

machine for each additional 8,000 stitches for added
Remove the hoop from the machine and from the garment.
Wet around the edge of the design using a sponge,
foam paint brush or envelope sealer.
