Stabilizers - Select the right foundation for every design

BLP-FILM
Press Away Embroidery Stabilizer
Press-Away Topping is a temporary stabilizer that dissolves when pressed with a hot, dry iron. It’s used during the application process to provide stability to stitches, which helps prevent puckering, tunneling, and distortion. Press-Away topping is perfect for applications that need stability but absolutely no stabilizer remaining.
BLS400
Hydro Melt - Embroidery Topping
This is the perfect topping for projects that use high pile fabrics such as fleece, terry cloth, and knits. It creates a smooth embroidery surface so stitches won’t sink into your fabric, giving a crisp definition and detail to your work. Hydro Melt dissolves in water, so it should only be used on projects that can be wet without staining. You can easily remove the stabilizer with a damp cloth or sponge. If you are using a steamer or iron, do not let it come into direct contact with the Hydro Melt.
BLS500
Dissolve-Away Mesh Backing
Dissolve-Away stabilizer is temporary and dissolves completely in water without leaving any residue. It's perfect for projects such as lace, appliqué, emblems, or any application that needs stability but absolutely no stabilizer remaining. Dissolve-Away Mesh will prevent puckering, tunneling and distortion while stitching. After embroidering, gently remove the remain-ing stabilizer. The rest will wash away. Store unused stabilizer in a dry, airtight container.
