This medium weight tearaway is specifically designed to dissolve when the item is washed. Simply tear excess stabilizer from the finished embroidery-- any remaining residue will dissolve with regular washing. (May require more than one washing to completely dissolve.) Ideal for towels, chair backs, napkins, or linens where the back side on the embroidery is visible. Great for quilters to use in paper piecing or to trace quilting design on for use during machine quilting.
