No Show Embroidery Backing (1.5 oz.) Soft, sheer, stable, and translucent nylon-reinforced cutaway backing. Specifically designed for left chest applications, eliminating the backing from showing through the garment. Ideal for lightweight, light-colored fabrics – keeps outlines on track when hooped in with your knit fabric. Can be used with a medium weight tearaway for added stability. Translucent mesh, lightweight cutaway stabilizer with a low-melt adhesive on one side. Ideal for items that cannot be hooped, such as leathers, silks, or other slippery items. Apply the fusible stabilizer to the back of the fabric prior to hooping, then hoop both the stabilizer and the fabric to be embroidered. Or hoop only the stabilizer, lay the fabric on top of the hoop, and then fuse the fabric to the stabilizer. The adhesive is activated with a medium setting on a household hand iron, and is easy to reposition.
Unlike traditional cutaway, this product will not shadow through on light colored fabrics such as knits. Its softness makes it ideal for children's clothing and baby garments. By fusing the stabilizer to the back of the garment, we are more successful in hooping and do not stretch the garment out of shape. Cut a piece of the stabilizer at least one inch larger than the hoop size you are planning to use.
