INSPIRA® Clear N’ Melt Stabilizer

INSPIRA® Clear N’ Melt is a transparent film stabilizer which can be used as a topping or backing. It instantly disappears when touched with the tip of an iron. INSPIRA® Clear N’ Melt will not stick to the iron, ironing board or the embroidered area. It is great for fabrics you do not want to wash. Use as a topping to keep nap or pile from peeking through stitches. For uneven surfaces and coarse weave fabrics, INSPIRA® Clear N’ Melt prevents stitches from sinking. Use as a backing for sheer fabrics.
 
Sizes available:

Clear N’ Melt , 8” x 25 yards   (620114996)

Other information

Best for these applications:
• Topper: napped fabrics, pile fabrics, coarsely woven fabrics and fabrics that you don’t want to get wet.
• Backing for sheer or very light weight fabrics, netting, chiffon, organdy, organza or any other fabrics that you don’t want to get wet. Use with low density embroideries.
 
Directions for use:
For use as a topper:
• Hoop the fabric to be embroidered with appropriate backing stabilizer.
• Place the INSPIRA® Clear N’ Melt stabilizer on top of the hooped fabric. Baste in place.
• Embroider the design.
• When the embroidery is completed, carefully pull away the excess stabilizer. Using a dry iron (low to medium setting), lightly touch the iron tip to the film which will dissipate into tiny particles that can be brushed off.
For use as a backing:
• Cut a piece of INSPIRA® Clear N’ Melt stabilizer large enough for the selected hoop (hoop dimension plus at least 1” on all four sides).
• Hoop fabric and stabilizer together, pulling them taut in the hoop.
• Embroider the design.
• When the embroidery is completed, carefully pull away the excess stabilizer. Using a dry iron (low to medium setting), lightly touch the iron tip to the film which will dissipate into tiny particles that can be brushed off.
