Avalon water soluble stabilizer is a thin PVA plastic film and is 35 microns thick. The water soluble film can be washed away after embroidery, hence it’s alternative name, wash-away stabilizer or topping.
- Embroid directly with inter-linking stitches
- Place over a ground material to stabilize the fabric
- Provide support beneath the fabric
What is Avalon?
Avalon is a transparent film which provides extra stability for fabrics like knitwear and stretchy fabrics. It can be used as a topping or backing to help improve the appearance of embroidery.
What is a Wash-Away Stabilizer?
Wash-away stabilizers are designed to dissolve when wet. It comes in two forms: plastic-like film and soluble paper.Both forms can be framed with the fabric.
Fabrics Used On
Perfect on deep pile fabrics such as towelling, fleece or knitwear to stop stitches from sinking. Also, place thin or stretchy fabric between two layers of the Avalon water soluble stabilizer and stretch taut in the embroidery frame.
Use a wash-away stabilizer for free-motion and programmed-stitch embroidery, especially with fabrics that are difficult to mark. You can draw your design on the wash-away stabilizer with a fine-point marking pen to use as a stitching guide!
Directions of Use
After completing the embroidery, tear off the Avalon, brush off any excess or use a damp brush or steam iron. Important: Do not mist spray or leave embroidery wet as this may cause colours to run.
When embroidering directly onto this particular avalon, it’s important that the stitches do not overlap.
