Heavy Tearaway for Solid Support
Embellish® Bold Tearaway is a tightly woven, heavy duty, stabilizer made using a unique “Non-Woven” technique, and it is used to support large or dense embroideries on stable woven fabric such as: cotton, duck cloth, twill, and denim. It features a multi-directional tear capability, easily pulling away clean from the embroidery design for a crisp look on the front and back. It is also available in a fusible version. Embellish® Bold Tearaway is recommended to be used as a “floater” under the hoop when used in conjunction with Embellish® Fusible Bold Tearaway that has been ironed to the back of woven fabric. Adding a “floater” of Embellish® Bold Tearaway adds additional support to the fabric when using a design that has more than 12,000 stitches in a 4”x4” hoop.
Made in America. Premium tearaway fibers using the Wet-Laid Non-Woven Process. 2 oz.
Holds up to 12,000 embroidery stitches in a 4”x4”
- Cut a “floater” piece at least one inch larger than the outer perimeter of the embroidery design to ensure proper stabilization.
- Hoop the material along with the fused Embellish® Fusible Bold Tearaway, making sure the material and stabilizer are taut.
- If the design has more than 12,000 stitches in a 4” x 4” hoop then “float” a piece of non-fusible Embellish® Bold Tearaway under the hoop for added support.
- Add an embroidery topper on top of the hooped material (either Embellish® Rinse-Away Clear Topper or Embellish® Iron-Away Clear Topper).
- Embroider the design.
Remove the material from the hoop. Remove the topper following the topper product sheet found in this workbook.
Hold your fingers over the bobbin thread and tear away as much of the stabilizer as possible, starting with the “floater.”
If the iron temperature was too hot during the fusing process of the Embellish® Fusible Bold Tearaway, it might be necessary to re-heat the stabilizer using a Silk Setting for it to release from the material.
