Cutaway Soft

STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® Appendix 4 Product Class 1

Cutaway soft embroidery backing is one kind of permanent stabilizers that remains on the fabric and keep it stable during and after embroidery. It's a good choice for knit fabrics as it prevents the designs from stretching out with frequent wearing and washing. Cutaway stabilizer is also recommended to use on loosely woven fabrics and on projects to be framed, where visibility of the stabilizer is not an issue. It does well in projects where the machine embroidery stabilizer can be left in the finished piece. However, as dense embroidery or clothing items will be washed frequently, cutaway is good for staying and giving added stability.
