Press & Tear is a needle friendly pressure sensitive adhesive tearaway stabilizer. It allows you to embroider those hard to hoop items with rarely any residue on your needles. Perfect for those difficult jobs like: CD Cases, Cooler tops, heavy towels or blankets, collars and cuffs, socks, and heavy jackets or anything that is difficult to hoop.
Even tiny baby socks are easy with Press and Tear. You hoop the stabilizer…not the sock! Just place the stabilizer in the hoop, release the paper backing, and lay and smooth out the baby sock. Pin back the additional sock area out of the way and you have smooth surface ready to embroider. When finished just release the embroidery, and remove any excess from the back. Releases with ease, but holds perfectly while embroidering.
The stabilizer is a 1.5 oz, dense, “wet laid “ non-directional, non-woven tearaway that contains needle lubricants to promote needle glide and reduce sticky build up. It tears away cleanly and easily leaving none of the fuzzies behind.
We recommend using the “Cool Sew” Organ needle while embroidering with adhesives.
