Embroidery Stabilizers – What’s the best water soluble film for fleece, sweatshirts and towelling, light and sheer fabrics?

September 24th, 2013

Marathon’s Water Soluble Film is an easy to use cold water soluble film.

This 25 micon film is embossed for easy use, can be used as a topping fabric on such items as fleece, sweatshirts or towelling, and will prevent the loop or the pile showing through the embroidery.

Our Water Soluble Film is an ideal backing fabric on very light or sheer fabrics as it gives great stability and it’s easy to remove.
