Tear Aways are light and soft universal stabilizers for embroidery on medium to heavy fabrics. They’re ideally suited for machine embroidery and also for patchwork and quilting. It is called Tear Away because you simply tear away the overlapping remains of the stabilizer with your fingers. These stabilizers are made of cotton and are free of synthetic addition. Soft and smooth on the skin, they’re especially well suited for children’s and baby clothing.
