This is a fabulously convenient pre-cut medium-weight (50gsm) tearaway stabiliser. It’s made from recycled cotton and comes in a handy 25 x 30cm (10 x 12 inch) size, perfect for hooping with your 5 x 7 inch machine embroidery frames.

This cotton tear-away stabiliser provides a strong, stable and non-slippery surface to support your stitching, while still being easy to pull away from your stitching afterwards.

You can use tear-away stabiliser with any fabric. Tear-away stabilisers especially work wonders when paired with woven fabrics like cotton, linen, polycotton, canvas, and denim. It’s even great for embroidering on leather or premade items like shoes and caps.

You can either hoop the stabiliser together with your fabric or hoop the stabiliser alone and float your fabric on top. If you’re hooping your fabric, make sure your fabric is drum-tight in the hoop to avoid any shifting or puckering. If you’re floating your fabric, then this stabiliser is perfect for using with temporary glues, masking tape or pins to help you hold your fabric in the perfect starting position.

You can also use this stabiliser without a hoop to add extra support for other sewing projects. I also love to use it underneath appliques and free motion embroidery. You can even use it to help sew sticky and tricky fabrics when you’re in a pinch and can’t find a non-stick foot or walking foot, by sandwiching your fabric between 2 strips so it glides through the machine with ease.

Once you’ve finished stitching up your masterpiece, simply tear away the excess stabiliser from around your design, leaving your embroidery looking neat and professional.

If you’re working with a particularly dense design, don’t be afraid to use two layers of stabiliser if your fabric is likely to need that extra support. If in doubt, do a practice stitch out on a scrap piece of similar fabric.

As well as being made from recycled cotton, this stabiliser is certified with Oeko-Tex Standard 100, which means it’s free of harmful chemicals, which is great news for you and the environment. It’s also acid-free, making it perfect for embroidered scrapbooking decorations and other long-lasting projects.

So if you like stitching up a storm and want your embroidery to look its best, then we hope that this cotton tear-away stabiliser will be your go-to choice for a “tear-iffic” embroidery experience!
