INSPIRA® Tear-A-Way Light Stabilizer

INSPIRA® Tear-A-Way Light is a great backing for light to medium weight stable woven fabrics. It is ideal for use with designs with low density and stitch count, such as outline designs or redwork. The light, crisp nature of this stabilizer makes it very easy to remove and ensures that the stitches will not be distorted when the stabilizer is pulled away. Multiple layers of INSPIRA® Tear-Away Light stabilizer can be used for slightly more dense designs.

Other information

Best for these applications:
• Embroideries with light to medium stitch counts, built-in decorative stitches, appliqué.
• Light to medium weight woven fabrics, light weight corduroy or other napped fabrics, chino, cotton pique, chambray and felt.
Directions for use:
• Cut a piece of INSPIRA® Tear-A-Way Light stabilizer large enough for the selected hoop (hoop dimension plus at least 1” on all four sides).
• Hoop fabric and stabilizer together, pulling them taut in the hoop. Float additional layers of INSPIRA® Tear-A-Way Light stabilizer between the hoop and the machine for additional support for designs with a high stitch count.
• Stitch the embroidery.
• Gently tear to remove the excess stabilizer. If multiple layers are used, remove one layer at a time to avoid distortion of fabric and/or stitches.
